  • Thousands gather in Sanaa after rebel clashes

Yemeni President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi said all those who have identified a clear position in support of the popular uprising aimed at ending the coup and the restoration of the state "will all be partners in the present and future of Yemen".

"Such behaviors are unjustifiable", al-Houthi said on Saturday in response to measures taken by supporters of Saleh, the head of Yemeni General People's Congress (GPC) party, against the Houthi Ansarullah movement.

Saleh's GPC party accused the Houthis of failing to honor the truce and claimed in a statement on its website that the Houthis bear responsibility for dragging the country into a civil war.

The statement was issued after a meeting between Hadi and his advisers to form a broad national alliance in the face of the militias Houthi.

A coalition statement said the decision to "take the lead and to side with their people will free Yemen of. militias loyal to Iran".

But Houthi rebels, his allies until this week, accused him of a "coup". Hadi ran uncontested, won a landslide victory and was expected to resign two years later, but failed to do so amid increasing pressure from the Houthi rebels.

"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.

The remarks came after Saleh supporters battled Houthi fighters for a fourth day in the capital Sana'a as the two sides traded blame for a rift between allies that could affect the course of a fight against the invading Saudi regime.

Khattar Abou Diab, who teaches political science at the University of Paris, tells VOA that former president Saleh has a "strong political instinct" and that he made his move against the Houthis at a time when the situation on the ground is favorable.

The Houthi rebels denounced what they described as "sedition", meaning Saleh's behaviour towards the Saudi coalition.

Residents of Yemen's capital, Sanaa, are used to the sounds of gunfire, but in the last four days they've had to adjust to new faultlines in the conflict.

"It is happening in coordination with it", referring to the Saudi-led coalition".

The fighting subsided by the afternoon as Saleh supporters secured control.

"It needs to be fully wound down if we are to avoid an atrocious humanitarian tragedy involving the loss of millions of lives, the like of which the world has not seen for many decades", UN Undersecretary for Humanitarian Affairs Mark Lowcock said Friday addressing reporters in Geneva.
