Ansarullah: Yemen’s Ex-President Ali Abdullah Saleh Not Honest in Defending Nation

TEHRAN (FNA)- Yemen’s Ansarullah movement said the country’s former president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, “was not honest” in his confrontation with the Saudi-led military coalition as he was collaborating covertly with Riyadh, describing Saleh’s era as the “worst” in Yemen’s history.

Mohammad al-Bukhaiti, a top figure in the Political Council of Yemen's Ansarullah movement, made the remarks in an interview, hours after Saleh was killed in clashes between his forces and the Yemeni popular forces on the outskirt of the capital Sana’a, presstv reported.

The Ansarullah official described the death of Saleh as a landmark and major turning point in Yemen’s history since a “dangerous plot against the nation” had been foiled by Yemeni forces.

"Today Yemen is witnessing a historic phase, maybe one of the most historic phases... The most dangerous conspiracy against these people was toppled," he added.

"We also have the end of the era of Saleh which was the worst era in the history of Yemen. We have entered a new phase. I would add that we have filled the gaps inside the country," he noted.

"Because Saleh wasn't honest in confronting the aggression, he was collaborating with this aggression secretly and not publicly or overtly," he added.

"We were correct when we accused Saleh of conspiring. We were also honest when we said that Saleh isn't participating in confronting the aggression, and using the card of internal sedition in Yemen will have an impact in confronting the aggression," he noted.

"Despite internal sedition, despite all this, the front against the aggression has not been affected... despite many of the these forces being preoccupied by defusing this sedition," he further said.

"This shows that those fighting the aggression are the Yemeni people led by Leader of Yemen’s Ansarullah movement, Abdul-Malik al-Houthi. And there is a popular will in confronting this aggression and against this aggression. Were it not for a popular will.. a real popular will... we will not have succeeded in persevering against this foreign aggression and amidst the political divisions and sedition," he further stated.

"But the people were able to overcome this because the will of the people is in support of the leadership of Abdul-Malik al-Houthi and against this aggression.

"This historic moment will have a lot of repercussions. At the local level we will be able to fill all of the gaps...and will be able to focus on confronting the foreign aggression... and also they haven't realized that this was the last tool they had," he also noted.

"Using the new cruise missiles against the UAE will also have a big impact on changing the future of Yemen and the whole region," he stated.

"We believe this sedition has ended because Saleh was collaborating with the aggression but secretly, and so when the popular base of Saleh's General People's Congress became confident that he was working with the aggression, his popularity decreased," he added.

"We allowed Saleh to participate in confronting the aggression... which he didn't do... so his popularity increased, so his danger also increased, but today after he announced joining the aggression and after he described confronting the aggression as a useless battle, he was exposed," Bukhaiti, noted.

"The popular leaders of his party were stunned and shocked by his statement. Just the day before he said he was against the aggression and in the period of one hour he announced that battling this aggression was useless," he also said.

"The supporters of the party had become vigilant. This now pushes more and more people to battle front because Saleh was disputing or preventing many of those in his party from going to the front and fighting the aggression."

"The countries launching the aggression used all of their cards. At the beginning by their direct military intervention they would sway the battle in their favor, but this did not happen," he added.

"So they once again depended on some Yemeni components to support them. But this also did not lead anywhere. When they were incapable of confronting the Yemeni forces on the borders Saudi Arabia tried to use Yemeni forces to protect its own borders, but this card also did not achieve any successes," he noted.

"So trying to use a foreign aggression, using political divisions, all of these cards didn't achieve success. So what remained was to pin their hopes on the internal crumpling or collapse and suffering of the Yemeni people," he further said.

"When Saleh spoke he did not only speak of changing his stance from confronting the aggression to one who was calling for the aggression but he actually gave the impression that the success of sedition and treason against us would translate to the end of the war and the end of suffering," he added.

"Now this card has fallen, the card of sedition has fallen from Saleh's hands," he said.

"Trying to us the economy as a weapon also didn't have any impact on the country and increased the Yemeni peoples' hostility towards this campaign," he added.

He added that the talks with Saleh's party may be possible after they chose a new leader.

"What is required now is that the honorable clean leaders in Saleh's party must be in the forefront and chose a noble leadership," he said adding that if they do so they will be supported.

Bukhaiti also denied reports of ongoing clashes in the capital Sana'a, stressing that they were lies being spread by foreign news agencies.

"These are absolute lies, we only here the bombings from the Saudi warplanes... which are now bombing the civilians," he said.

Yemen’s Interior Ministry issued a statement on Monday, confirming the death of Saleh, during clashes in capital Sana'a.

The ministry added that Yemeni forces, backed by fighters from the popular Ansarullah movement, were in full control of all positions previously held by Saleh’s forces in Sana’a.

Hours later, Leader of Yemen’s Ansarullah movement, Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, said in a televised message that the movement had managed to thwart a major threat to the country’s security by defeating the plot hatched by Saleh and his forces.

He added that despite his early pretense about being opposed to Saudi aggression, Saleh finally changed course and took sides with the aggressors.

Noting that recent positions taken by Saleh were openly in favor of Yemen’s enemies, the leader of Ansarullah said Saleh’s positions, which were backed by a united media front of the enemies even took members of his own party by surprise.

IRGC Commander: Coup Aborted after Saleh's Death
TEHRAN (FNA)- Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said the death of Yemen's former President Ali Abdullah Saleh put an end to a coup-style attempt in the Arab country.

"We witnessed that they (the enemies) intended to launch a coup against the Mujahedeen and Ansarullah but this plot was nipped in the bud," General Jafari said, addressing a ceremony in Tehran on Tuesday.

Meantime, he voiced regret that Saudi Arabia has engaged in war and conflicts with other Muslim nations on behalf of the US and Israel and is fomenting insecurity in these countries. "They are sowing differences among Muslims at the order of the US and with its support and they are accompanying the Israelis."

The Yemeni interior ministry confirmed on Monday earlier media reports saying that Saleh has been killed while escaping from Sana'a to Ma'arib province.

Saleh was fleeing Sana'a on an armored vehicle when his vehicle was hit and destroyed.

Saleh was also accompanied by his deputy Aref Zuka and Secretary-General of the National Congress Party Yasser al-Avazi when their car was hit in Khoulan al-Tayal security point.

A Yemeni reporter said that Saleh had an appointment with Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar, one of the former military men affiliated to the former regime and Saudi Arabia, to help him escape from Ma'arib to be transferred to the UAE.

Meantime, after reports on Saleh's death, the Saudi-led coalition of several countries released a statement, calling on their citizens in Sana'a to distance at least 500m from Ansarullah bases.

The new change in the course of the Yemeni conflict came after Saleh and his supporters turned their weapons against Ansarullah movement.

Meantime, Ansarullah leader Abdul-Malek al-Houthi accused Saleh of "betrayal," vowing to keep fighting against the Saudi-led coalition.

The coalition later welcomed Saleh's new stance and offered to provide support to fight the Ansarullah fighters, according to Al-Arabiya.
