IRGC Commander Reacts To The Death of Yemen's Saleh
Unverified footage of his bloodied body lolling in a blanket circulated just days after he tore up his alliance with the Houthis following almost three years in which they had jointly battled the Saudi-led coalition that intervened to try to reinstate Yemen's internationally recognised government.
"We ask civilians to remain at least 500 meters (yards) away from Houthi military vehicles and gatherings", it said. He sent a video purportedly showing Saleh's body being carried away by a group of armed men chanting, "God is Great".
In a televised speech Monday, Houthi leader Abdel Malek al Houthi declared victory against Saleh. These arrangements won't be achieved after Saleh was assassinated unless a new alliance is formed with Saleh's forces to defeat Houthis inside Sanaa.If the trucial parties agreed on how to rule Sanaa, this will accelerate its rehabilitation and make it the country's administrative capital once again, after all government activities were previously transferred to Aden as a temporary capital.The people of Sanaa, the leaders of the General People's Congress and the commanders of Saleh's forces must realize the importance of the change Saleh adopted, which led to his assassination, and must advocate for his decision and project.What about the wild wolves, Houthis? He also succeeded in playing rivals off against one another and positioning himself as a counterterrorism ally of the United States, while also aligning with Iran and other parties when necessary.
A military source said the Houthis stopped their four-car convoy about 40 km (25 miles) south of Sanaa and shot dead Saleh and two other senior GPC officials. Government forces are leveraging their control of Mar'ib, a strategically significant and resource rich city east of Sanaa, to launch a multi-axis offensive on the rebel-held capital. Saleh's gambit failed, however, as the Houthis were reportedly able to quell the brief uprising led by his forces. He also called for the opening of the roads and crossings for relief boats to reach the city and for commercial traffic.
"The president will soon announce a general amnesty for all those who collaborated with the Houthis in recent months and who have retracted that allegiance", said Prime Minister Ahmad Obaid bin Daghr.
Saudi Arabia has lost a card which could help it eradicate the Iranian threat in Yemen.
That dealt a serious blow to his already fragile alliance with rebel chief Abdul Malik al-Houthi.
Mack told VOA, before news of Mr. Saleh's death, the former president "wanted to have one chance to restore his reputation, which has been terribly, terribly damaged during the past decade".
But the head of the Houthis' Ansarullah group warned that the biggest victor from what he described as Saleh's "sedition" was the Saudi-led coalition.
The conflict has pushed Yemen to the brink of mass starvation and triggered what the United Nations has called the world's worst humanitarian crisis. "This latest violence couldn't come at a worse time".
