Riyadh – The “Ahrar Sana’a” movement announced on Thursday that it has launched a “revolution” against insurgents to liberate the Yemeni capital, Sana’a, and reinstate stability in the city.

The movement issued a statement saying that it will target top Houthi officials if they do not retreat from Sana’a and end their “disastrous coup”.

According to the statement, the new movement was established in response to the people’s aspirations in getting rid of the insurgents, who turned against the republican system and undermined the governmental institutions.

“Ahrar Sana’a” described Houthis as “clergymen,” who caused riot and chaos in the country.

The movement said that the insurgents had used their weapons to kill, terrify civilians and destroy the country.

In addition, it accused them of alienating Yemen from the Arab folf and including it in the Persian “Wilayat al-Faqih”.

The statement also added that the movement is an extension of the sacrifices and struggles of the revolution of September 26, 1962.

“Ahrar Sana’a” said it believes in the goals of that revolution, which restored the dignity and freedom of the Yemeni people, while ending the corrupt ruling system that persecuted, deprived the people of their rights and distressed them for centuries.
