Getting rid of Houthi guerilla only way to advance federal Yemen, says Hadi
President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi said that getting rid of the Houthis is the only way to advance Yemen’s transformation to a federal state given that the rebel guerilla does not believe in partnership.
In a phone call on Monday with Ameen al-Aokaymi the governor of Aljawf where the army is dislodging the Houthis from their last areas, Hadi said that the “guerrilla turned treacherously against the people”, referring to their abandoning of the national dialogue of 2013-2014 to mount a coup de’ tat instead of continuing to talk.
Hadi told al-Akeemi that getting rid of “the rouge guerilla” would be “the only way to advance Yemen’s transformation to a federal state.”
He spoke highly of the national army’s combat performance in defending Yemen.
