Former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh has appeared to be killed following tensions appeared between his forces and the Houthis in the Yemeni capital of Sana’a.
According reports of the pro-Houthi media, he was killed after the Houthis bombed a bulding where he was hiding.
Thousands of Saleh’s supporters surrendered to the Houthis in the last few hours, while hundreds others were arrested, according to the Yemeni ministry of interior.
Yemeni sources also confirmed that Saudi-led coalition warplanes conducted several airstrikes on the Houthis in Sana’a supporting Saleh forces. However, Saleh supporters continued withdrawing from their positions.
The Houthis will likely capture all the strategic positions in Sana’a from Saleh’s supporters in the near future, as the defenses of Saleh forces continue collapsing on all fronts.
