Congress Party leaders: Ex-President Ali Abdullah Saleh is fine

Mon, Dec. 4, 2017
CAIRO – 4 December 2017: “Former President Saleh is fine and leads the battle himself,” leaders in the General People's Congress stressed to Al-Arabiya satellite channel on Monday.





Fighters from Iran-backed militias led by the Houthis blew up the house of ex-President Ali Abdullah Saleh in the centre of the capital Sanaa on Monday, Reuters quoted residents; Saleh's whereabouts remain unknown.

Iranian news agency “Muhr” published false news reports about the murder of Saleh while he was tryng to flee Sanaa, following bombing his house by the Houthi militias.

Yemeni President Abd Rabbou Mansur Hadi announced launching a military campaign to uproot the Houthis militias from the Capital Sanaa, said the Yemeni premier according to al-Arabiya channel.

Yemeni Prime Minister, Ahmed Obeid bin Daghr, revealed that President Hadi is expected to grant presidential pardons to whoever stops collaboration with the Houthi militias, according to AFP on Monday.

“The Yemeni legitimacy lies in fighting against the Iranian-backed Houthis militias,” Bin Daghr added.

Salah’s loyalists have lost ground on the sixth day of heavy urban combat with the Houthi militias, his former allies in nearly three years of war with a Saudi-led coalition.

Former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh announced on Sunday the dissolution of his partnership with the Houthi rebels amid heavy military clashes between his supporters and Iran-aligned Houthis in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa.

The death toll from clashes erupted in Yemen between Houthi militias and the General People's Congress (GPC) forces, loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, rose to 200 on Sunday.
