Yemen: Conflict Persists Even After Saudi Walks Away


Despite Saudi Arabia’s decision to end the month-long campaign of air strikes against the Houthi rebels and to back a political solution to bring peace to Yemen, Militiamen in Southern Yemen said on Tuesday that they would not withdraw from fighting rebels until they move them away from the region. The residents told Reuters that even after the announcement of Saudi Government to end the air strikes, Houthi militants and Militias have fought each other on the streets of Southern city of Aden on Tuesdaynight.

The southern Group of the Militias told the Reuters that the end of the Saudi-led operation did not mean the end of Southern resistance, and that the front would not stop its fight until all the south is purified from the Houthis and pro-Saleh forces. Southern civilians, former army officers and the members of the southern secessionist movement named Herak have clasped their hands with the Militias in fighting against the Houthis.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia has come to the fore declaring a new phase named “ Operation Restoring Hope” with the hope of camouflaging political, diplomatic and military action, while the focal point being the political process.

In the meantime, the Shiite rebels have announced a huge rally in the capital, Sanaa, to celebrate the end of month-long Saudi-led airstrikes campaign. Al-Masirah TV network, a national channel now held by the rebels, have called out the people to come to the street on Wednesday to participate in the rally.
