JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia, Yemeni President, Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, called Monday, on all Yemeni people, to revolt against the Houthi militias, hours after they murdered ex-President, Ali Abdullah Saleh.
Hadi, in a speech, cited by official Yemeni news agency, said, he instructed the legitimate Yemeni armed forces, who were positioned around the capital city, Sanaa, to support the uprising of the Yemeni people, against the Houthis.
Yemen, he added, was passing through a critical and decisive juncture, which required collaboration of all Yemeni people against the Houthis.
Hadi affirmed that he was confident Yemenis would emerge victorious against the militias. He urged those in the armed forces, opposition, political parties, the general people congress and social powers to revolt against the Houthis.
Saleh was killed earlier yesterday, during fierce clashes with Houthi militias in Sanaa.
A video showed Saleh carried in a blanket surrounded by Houthi militias celebrating his death. The short clip, aired on a pro-Houthi television channel, appears to show Saleh sustained a head injury, potentially a gunshot wound.
This development came, only one day after Saleh urged Yemenis to revolt against the Houthi militias, and offered dialogue with neighbouring countries.
