'Saudi, al-Qaeda helping Yemen fight Shiite'
By: Sultan Ahmed
SAADA, Yemen: Saudi Arabia and terror organization al-Qaeda are
helping the Yemeni government in its crackdown on Shiite, according to
a dissident Yemeni lawmaker.
"In recent months [Yemeni President] Ali Abdullah Saleh has taken many
recruits of al-Qaeda who were afraid of falling into the hands of
their regimes in countries like Egypt, Somalia, Pakistan and
Afghanistan. His plan was to use these fighters from al-Qaeda to
battle the Houthis in Saada," Yahya al-Houthi told Press TV on
Saturday August 29.
He said Saudi Arabia also supported the Yemeni government because the
Yemeni government "is meeting all Saudi demands especially those
related to terrorism."
The Yemeni lawmaker claimed that Saudi Arabia wants Ali Abdullah Salih
in power otherwise "many secrets" might be revealed.
"Yemen is now a main party in carrying out terrorist plots sponsored
by Saudi Arabia," al-Houthi said.
According the Yemeni dissident, Saudi Arabia is propagating Wahhabi
ideology in Yemen and the country is used as a base for Al-Qaeda
He said a training camp had also been set up for al-Qaeda members in
the Waila region.
"The area's of Malahit and Hasana which the Houthis have taken control
over were also area's where weapons were transferred from Saudi Arabia
to the terrorists," the lawmaker said.
Earlier, Yemeni Shia fighters, claimed that several Saudi warplanes
bombed districts in the rugged mountainous Saada province, near the
Saudi border on Thursday August 27.
"Saudi military aircraft executed several sorties on Thursday morning
over the area of Malaheez and bombed the area before returning to
Saudi Arabia," the Shia fighters said in a statement on Thursday.
"We consider this action a flagrant intervention in Yemeni affairs ...
It is a continuation of the Saudi interference in the conflict, which
has now got to the point of attacking Yemen (territory) directly," the
Yemen dismissed the allegation.
