Qaeda, Daesh part in Arab Coalition: Houthi FM

2022-09-26 | Since 2 Month

Sana'a (Debriefer) Qaeda and Daesh (or ISIS) are integral part of the Saudi-led "aggressive" coalition, the Houthi foreign ministry said on Saturday in reply to charges made by the President of Yemen's Leadership Council.
At virtual debate organized by the Middle East Institute on Friday, President Rashad al-Alimi accused the Houthi group of cooperating with al-Qaeda, citing Houthi "releases of many sentenced Qaeda militants, including men accused of USS Cole explosion, who moved to liberated areas to commit terrorist acts."
Many counterterrorism officers were killed in clashes with al-Qaeda in Dhalea governorate, he said, noting that the fighting left 8 militants killed, including two of those released by the Houthi group from Sana'a prisons.
For the Houthis, Alimi remarks "are baseless, and desperate attempt to hide his relations to terrorism," according to the Sana'a-based Saba.
"The whole world knows that Qaeda leaders confessed, in videos posted on their websites, to relations with the aggressive coalition led by America," the Houthi foreign ministry said in a statement.
