The leader of Yemen’s Shia Houthi Ansarullah movement has accused some foreign powers of conspiring against Yemen and its nation amid the political tensions in the Arab country.
Addressing thousands of his supporters in the northern city of Sa’ada on Tuesday, Abdul-Malik al-Houthi censured political factions in cahoots with some regional states, noting that they want to ignite conflicts and create problems in Yemen.
He added that such factions try to wreak havoc in Yemen by ignoring the public interests of the nation.
Al-Houthi also warned conspiring factions against the dire consequences that their efforts will have at the end.
The Houthi leader went on to say that tension-seeking factions are opposed to the establishment of stability in Yemen as they could obtain their goals by means of chaos and turmoil.
Houthi highlighted that Ansarullah is after partnership with other players in Yemen’s political arena, and that Yemen’s revolution holds no enmity towards neighboring Arab countries as well as the international community.
President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and the cabinet of Prime Minister Khaled Bahah resigned on Thursday after Shia Ansarullah revolutionaries seized the presidential palace in the capital.
The parliament, however, rejected Hadi’s resignation pending an emergency session.
Yemen has been the scene of tensions after the Shia Ansarullah fighters arrested Ahmed Awad bin Mubarak, Hadi’s chief of staff, at a checkpoint in the western district of Hada on January 17.
The impoverished Arab country is currently grappling with a severe political crisis between the central government and Ansarullah fighters.
In September 2014, Ansarullah revolutionary fighters gained control of Sana’a following a four-day battle with army forces loyal to General Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar, the half-brother of the country’s former dictator, Ali Abdullah Saleh.
