Al-Saud Orders Brotherhood’s Militia to Wage Street War in Sana’a ~ Yemen Updates: 2 May 2015
TEHRAN (FNA)– Saudi Arabia has ordered the militia affiliated to Ikhwan al-Muslimoun (Muslim Brotherhood) to wage attacks and stir chaos in Yemen’s Sana’a, Ma’rib, Bayda and Taiz provinces, informed sources disclosed on Saturday.
“Saudi Arabia has ordered al-Islah party, a branch of Ikhwan al-Muslimoun in Yemen, which collaborates with the terrorists and militia who support the fugitive Yemen president to put their forces on standby to stir chaos and street war in Sana’a, Ma’rib, Bayda and Taiz provinces,” the sources said.
They revealed that Saudi Arabia has also called on Islah party to increase its coordination with Riyadh to prevent military moves by Ansarullah Movement and forces loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 38 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 3,108 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
On April 21, the monarchy declared end to Yemen airstrikes after five weeks of bombings, but airstrikes are still underway.
