Yemen’s interior ministry on Monday announced the killing of former president Ali Abdullah Saleh and restoring security to the capital Sanaa and the rest of the provinces.
“The interior ministry announces the end of the crisis of militias and the killing of their leader and a number of his criminal supporters,” an anchor said on Al-Masirah television, referring to armed supporters of Saleh.
The statement described Saleh as the master of betrayal and mentioned that his followers cut off roads and attacked the citizens violently in the context of their Saudi-led scheme.
The Saudi warplanes launched a number of air raids in order to help Saleh carry out his sedition scheme, according to the statement.
Earlier on Sunday, the Yemeni ministry said that dozens of Saleh militiamen were arrested, stressing that the “conspiracy” plotted by Saleh against Ansarullah movement was contained and that security was restored to Sanaa.
Clashes erupted in Sanaa when Saleh’s militias attempted to take control of the Yemeni capital.
The former president’s militiamen, however, failed to do so and Ansarullah revolutionaries managed to restore security to the capital, accusing Saleh, whose whereabouts are unknown, of betraying an alliance aimed at confronting a brutal Saudi-led aggression on the Arab impoverished country.
