Yemen's Saleh says 'citizens have revolted against Houthi aggression'

Yemen's Saleh says 'citizens have revolted against Houthi aggression'

Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television said at least 80 people have been killed in this week's clashes between forces loyal to Saleh and Houthis.

"We vow to our brothers and neighbors that, after a ceasefire is in place and the blockade is lifted. we will hold dialogue directly through the legitimate authority represented by our parliament", he said.

Former president Saleh and the Yemeni military fought the Houthi rebels five times from 2005 to 2014, before becoming allies after the Saudi-led coalition took military action in March 2015 to restore President Hadi to power, who had been ousted and imprisoned by the Houthis.

The offer came as clashes between Saleh loyalists and rebel fighters intensified in Sana'a.

"I call on brors of neighboring countries and coalition, to stop ir attacks, to lift blockade, to open airports and to allow entry of food aid and medicines, in return we will pass page (.)" And we will deal with m in a positive way, said Saleh in a televised intervention. Hadi ran uncontested, won a landslide victory and was expected to resign two years later, but failed to do so amid increasing pressure from the Houthi rebels.

"Saleh's speech is a coup against our alliance and partnership, and exposed the deception of those who claim to stand against aggression", al-Houthi said in a statement made Al Masirah TV.

"That blockade has been partially wound down but not fully wound down".

The conflict has since claimed more than 10,000 lives and triggered what the United Nations has described as the world's worst humanitarian crisis.

Saleh went on to denounce the Houthi militia, which he accuses of being responsible for the humanitarian disaster inside the country, and he insisted that the Yemeni people are standing up for themselves to get rid of them.

The Huthis have also accused the former president of accepting funds from the Saudi-backed Hadi government.

In 2015, Saudi Arabia and its Arab allies launched a massive air campaign aimed at reversing Houthi military gains and shoring up Yemen's embattled government.

The Houthis, a Shiite tribal militia from northwest Yemen, have been at war with the central government for the better part of a decade.

Saudi Arabia had late Thursday night intercepted and destroyed a ballistic missile fired from war-torn Yemen, state media reported.

The UN Human Rights Office has documented more than 13,800 civilian casualties, including more than 5,000 people killed since fighting began.
