Saleh Seeks New Page With Saudi-Led Coalition as Yemen Clashes Rage

Ali-Abdullah-Saleh

According to the Saudi Press Agency, Maliki said the "control of these types of weapons by terrorist organisations, including Al-Houthi armed militias, represents a threat to regional and global security".

The coalition accuses Saleh of having betrayed his Arab neighbours by joining the Houthi-led forces they say are aligned with non-Arab Iran.

The address came as forces loyal to Saleh were engaged in battle with the troops of Ansar Allah, or the Houthi rebels, in the capital Sanaa.

Yemen's former president Ali Abdullah Saleh has declared this Saturday ready to negotiate with Saudi Arabia-led coalition against which his forces have been fighting for two and a half years. Together these groups have been fighting against the Saudi-backed forces of ousted President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi since 2015.

"It demands the anti-government forces in Yemen to desist from attacks against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia", the FO added. They spoke on condition of anonymity, fearing reprisals.

Saleh agreed to leave presidency in 2012, n 33 years in front of Yemen, after months of popular protests and worldwide pressure (including that of its neighbours) to prevent anor civil war being unleashed as in Libya or Syria. The Arab states recently imposed a total blockade on Yemen after a rebel missile was shot down near Riyadh.

Nine dead in Taliban attack on Pakistan school
Shehzad Akbar, medical director of Hayatabad Medical Complex, said six people died of their wounds and 18 were being treated. According to the Pakistan Army's media wing, The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan has claimed responsibility for the attack.

A statement issued by the Yemeni presidency on Saturday evening said they supported all parties facing the coup allies, which they described as "an arm of the Persian Iranian project in Yemen" in the first comment on former president Ali Abdullah Saleh's call for a popular uprising against the Houthis.

The Houthis accused Mr Saleh of betrayal, and vowed to keep up the fight against the Saudi-led coalition.

Khattar Abou Diab, who teaches political science at the University of Paris, tells VOA that former president Saleh has a "strong political instinct" and that he made his move against the Houthis at a time when the situation on the ground is favorable.

The United Nations has warned that the country faces mass starvation unless the Saudi-led coalition allows more food aid to enter the impoverished country.

For his part, Houthi leader Abdel Malek al-Houthi called on Saleh to end what he called "the sectarian strife" that he has instigated, and threatened to take action against his supporters militarily if he does not.

The conflict and a blockade by the coalition has also left more than 20 million people in need of humanitarian aid, created the world's largest food security emergency, and led to a cholera outbreak that is thought to have killed 2,211 people since April.
