SANAA (Debriefer)--Prominent leader in the Ansar Allah Group, also known as the Houthis, Mohammed Al-Bukhaiti on Wednesday said the group does not have intentions to exclude the Islah Party from politics.
The party is considered the offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood in Yemen.
"It is very regrettable that the Muslim Brotherhood, including Rashid Al-Ghannouchi, stands on the side of the aggression on Yemen," he wrote on Twitter.
"We are in a state of war with the Muslim Brotherhood in Yemen, but we don’t intend to exclude them. We act based on the cause of a nation, not a party or sect as they do," he added.
The Islah Party has been fighting alongside the government and Saudi-led forces in the war against the Iran-backed Houthis.
The conflict started after the Houthis seized the capital Sanaa in late 2014 and escalated after a Saudi-led coalition launched a military intervention in support of the government in March 2015.
It has caused the world's largest humanitarian crisis, with millions of people now surviving on humanitarian aid.
