IRGC Commander Reacts To The Death of Yemen's Saleh
He sent a video purportedly showing Saleh's body being carried away by a group of armed men chanting, "God is Great".
The war in Yemen, the Arab world's most destitute country, plunged into a new and uncertain chapter Monday when its former president was killed amid an explosive bout of fighting that has convulsed the capital. Therefore, Houthis finally made a decision to kill him; not because he turned against them, but because he is capable of destroying their political project.Days ago, Saleh changed the map when he annulled his alliance with Houthis. Most people were indoors, and streets were deserted amid a state of fear as the Houthis asserted full control.
The collapse of the alliance between Saleh and the rebels saw at least 100 people reported dead in fighting, accusations of betrayal and the former leader reaching out to the Saudi-led coalition. President Hadi has reportedly instructed his deputy, General Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar, to attack Sanaa from the south in concert with Saleh's forces. Saleh then denounced Houthi missile strikes targeting Saudi Arabia.
Ex-president of Yemen killed by rebels
A dominant figure in Yemen, Saleh, 75, ruled the country for more than three decades before being deposed in 2012. It will support besieging Houthis in their areas in Northern Yemen in case the commanders of Saleh's army made a decision to fight alongside the Yemeni army.In the past few days, Saleh attempted to liberate Sanaa, which has been occupied by the coup perpetrators since 2014, when Houthi forces took over the headquarters of the First Brigade, leading to the defeat of all other military and security bodies without any resistance.Questions are today raised about how strong Houthis are in Sanaa. Three months later, following Saudi-led coalition air raids on his home in Sanaa, Saleh officially announced for the first time the establishment of his alliance with the Houthis.
The coalition will either have to continue waging a grinding war, possibly trying big offensives against Houthi-held areas at the risk of high civilian casualties, or offer compromises to bring the powerful Houthis to the negotiating table. Saleh's death complicates this, though control of the his fighters may shift to his son, Ahmed Ali Abdullah Saleh, or his nephew, Tariq. The Saudis had publicly welcomed Saleh's about-face, but any hope of a radical change in the balance of power in the conflict appears to have been terminated along with Saleh's life.
"We have notified the leader of the traitor and criminal militias to retract, be wise, to stop his militias from continuing committing crimes", he said. His death puts the exclamation point on the end of an era in Yemen that had, for all intents and purposes, already come to a close.
