Rabid zionist Saud’s bombs rain down on Sana’a
Yemen’s al-Masirah news website reports that Houthi fighters have managed to take over several positions from Saleh loyalists in Sana’a.
The Interior Ministry also stated on Monday that Saleh forces are teetering on the edge of collapse.
The ministry said in a statement late on Sunday that many of Saleh’s senior commanders had been arrested while hundreds of mercenaries had surrendered and laid down their weapons.
The ministry stressed that Yemeni security forces and popular committees will continue their operations to purge other areas from “treason militias.”
Saleh residence bombed
Meanwhile, there have been unconfirmed reports of Houthi fighters blowing up the house of Saleh in the center of Sana’a on Monday.
Initial reports suggested that the ex-president had been killed in the attack, but his party later denied the news.
UN chief calls for truce in Yemen
Also, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres on Sunday called for a ceasefire in Yemen amid an ongoing humanitarian crisis.
The UN chief “calls on all parties to the conflict to cease all air and ground assaults” and is “deeply concerned about the sharp escalation of armed clashes” over the past several days, his spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.
“Ambulances and medical teams cannot access the injured and people cannot go outside to buy food and other necessities. Aid workers are unable to travel and implement critical life-saving programs at a time when millions of Yemenis rely on assistance to survive,” he added, reiterating calls for the Saudi-led coalition to end its blockade of the Arab country.
Saudi Arabia announced in November that it was shutting down Yemen’s air, sea, and land borders, after Ansarullah fighters targeted an international airport near the Saudi capital, Riyadh, with a cruise missile in retaliation for the ceaseless bombardment of Yemen by the Saudi war machine for more than two and a half years.
Saudi Arabia has been pounding Yemen since March 2015 in an attempt to reinstate its ally, Yemen’s former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.
The war has taken the lives of more than 12,000 Yemenis and left the country’s infrastructure in ruins.
