Military sources within the legitimate Yemeni forces have revealed that Houthi militias and those loyal to the ousted president have committed crimes against citizens in Saada and Amran. Both these areas are under Houthi control, and these crimes come in the wake of conversations in which citizens distanced themselves from the militia.

The sources said the rebels abducted five notables from Amran because they did not chant phrases at a social occasion, raising questions about the current tense situation experienced by rebel leaders in these areas.

Furthermore, the Yemeni Prime Minister Dr Ahmed Obeid bin Daghr condemned what he described as the “irresponsible behaviour” directed at members of the military council and the Popular Resistance of Taiz in the city of Aden.

The official news agency Saba reported that the Prime Minister had a telephone conversation with the commander of Taiz forces Brigadier General Yousef Al-Sharaji during which he said that “an irresponsible group is insulting leaders of the Popular Resistance and the military council in Taiz” and they have been condemned by all political factions in Aden, Dhaleh, Lahij and Abyan who see Popular Resistance fighters in Taiz as comrades in the face of the rebel militias.
