Suffering of southern governorates can only end byending relation with the Saudi-led coalition backing the Yemeni official government, the Houthi group said Thursday.

"Salvation of the occupied provinces can only be attained by expelling the occupier and cutting all relations" with Arab coalition, Mohamed Ali al-Houthi tweeted.

"After the aggression warned its mercenaries in Aden, will darers remain or melt away like ice?" member of the Houthi Supreme Political Council added.

Clashes erupted Wednesday, between the Emirati-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) and the Saudi-backed presidential guard, following an attempt by STC supporters to storm the palace at the funeral of Commander Muneer al-Yafeie, who was killed in Houthi missile attack.

The armed clashes left three people killed and nine injured in vicinity of the presidential palace in Crater district, to the east of Aden.

The violence was sparked after calls by the STC vice-chairman, Hani bin Boraik, for mobilization and march on the presidential palace to overthrow the "government of terrorism and corruption loyal to the terrorist Islah Party."

On Wednesday, the Saudi-led coalition reiterated its decisive rejection of the dangerous developments in the Yemeni southern port city of Aden, seat of the internationally-recognized government.

The coalition command is anxiously following the developments in Aden, said the coalition spokesman in a statement.

The coalition will not tolerate any misuse of the Yemeni people's interests, Turki al-Maliki added, calling all parties to listen to reason and work with the Yemeni official government in order to cope with the critical stage.

Yemen has been racked by a 4-year bloody conflict between the Yemeni government's forces, backed by a Saudi-led coalition, and the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels who ousted the government in 2014.
