  • Saudi-coalition strikes Yemen

Yemen's former president Ali Abdullah Saleh has declared this Saturday ready to negotiate with Saudi Arabia-led coalition against which his forces have been fighting for two and a half years.

Hadi's office also commended the continuous support of the Arab alliance led by Saudi Arabia and the response to get rid of the "worst bloody sectarian coup supported by Iran".

"I call on brors of neighboring countries and coalition, to stop ir attacks, to lift blockade, to open airports and to allow entry of food aid and medicines, in return we will pass page (.)" And we will deal with m in a positive way, said Saleh in a televised intervention.

"We vow to our brothers and neighbours that, after a ceasefire is in place and the blockade is lifted. we will hold dialogue directly through the legitimate authority represented by our parliament", he said.

Fighting between rebel groups has erupted in Sanaa in recent days, leading to dozens of deaths, officials from both sides told CNN.

Saleh's call comes amid street fighting between his loyalists and Houthi rebels across the capital Sanaa. He also points up that Saleh's move represents a turning point in the situation inside the country, in which the tables have been turned against the Houthis, and the situation has returned to the status-quo prior to September 2014, when the Houthis seized chunks of the capital from former president Hadi. "Saleh's speech is a coup against our alliance and partnership... and exposed the deception of those who claim to stand against aggression", a spokesman for the group said in a statement carried by the rebels' Al Masirah TV.

Stressing that Yemen's interests lie in avoiding sedition, the Houthi leader called on citizens and tribal fighters to focus on the battle against the invading Saudi regime and stay away from any provocative acts. "The escalation of violence is overarching there". Moreover, Yemen, which was already poorest country in Middle East, is on brink of starvation, with three-quarters of its 28 million people dependent on humanitarian aid.

He added that some speculators claim that Saleh's statements are actually a proposition by Saudi Arabia to roll down the hostilities in a manner which would save face. "The reserves they accumulated during the fat years are melting like a snowball in the sun", he explained. Since then, countless airstrikes have struck rebel and civilian targets, causing thousands of casualties and crippling infrastructure in the Arab world's poorest country.

The civil war has left 10,000 dead, displaced to two million people and caused an epidemic of cholera that has affected almost anor million.

Shortly before, military and tribal forces loyal to Expresident had taken control of Radio Television, most of ministries and worldwide Airport of Sana'a, as verified by a collaborator of El PAÍS in that city.
