IRGC Commander Reacts To The Death of Yemen's Saleh
In a statement carried by the Saudi-owned Al-Hadath channel, the coalition said it was "confident of the will of the leaders and sons" of Saleh's General People's Congress (GPC) party to return to Arab fold.
Sources close to Saleh said that the head of the former president's security detail, Hussein al-Hamidi, was also killed, but did not provide further details. The new situation is critical and risky, and requires the interference of the Yemeni army and coalition forces in Sanaa, as well as working with Saleh's forces, which are still in shock.The people of Sanaa and the forces of the late Saleh have a great interest in fighting a war to reclaim their city from Houthis.
Houthi went on to blast Saleh for betraying the loyalty of those he had worked with and claimed the ordinary people of the capital could not understand how he had changed sides after three years of denouncing the Saudi-led coalition.
The death was first announced on Monday by the Sanaa-based interior ministry, controlled by Saleh's allies-turned-foes, the Houthi rebel movement. The assassination of Saleh aims to thwart the reconciliation project.As long as we realize that Saleh's assassination aimed to thwart reconciliation, we must work toward making it succeed.What Saleh did in the last four days before his assassination is the most important event since the war erupted three years ago. He finally left power in early 2012, but retained a strong influence with many armed loyalists in the country.
The Houthis, who are believed to be backed by Iran, stormed Sanaa in September 2014.
Analysts said Mr Saleh's death would be a huge moral boost for the Houthis and serious blow to the Saudi-led coalition that intervened in the conflict to try to restore the internationally recognised President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi's Government.
Warfare between the erstwhile allies has torn densely populated Sanaa for days, with Houthi fighters seizing control of much of the capital and on Monday blowing up Mr Saleh's house.
"You can not say this is the end of his political movement, but it's a very big blow", he said.
"Let's join hands to end the control of these. criminal gangs and. open a new chapter to rid our beloved Yemen of this nightmare", Hadi said from Saudi Arabia, where he lives in exile.
In a televised speech on Monday, Huthi made no mention of Saleh's death but expressed his satisfaction at the day's events. It was said that they were the strongest party, and that any attempt at driving them out would lead to a bloody war between the two parties in the city's historic streets.
