Yemen’s Houthi Shias to continue protest despite government calls

Houthi Shias call for mass demonstrations following the Yemeni government’s call on the Shia fighters to retreat from the capital Sana’a.


Earlier, Houthi leader called on supporters to take to streets in an effort to put an end to the Yemeni “government corruption.”

He urged Houthis to continue with the second phase of protests, noting the movement will be successful in toppling the government.

Meanwhile, Yemeni President called on the fighters to “complete their exit from Amran province” just north of the capital.

The Houthis reject a proposed government of technocrats and want the decision to cut fuel subsidies to be reversed in the Arab world’s poorest country.

On August 20, thousands of Houthis strengthened their positions in Sana’a in their efforts to press the Yemeni government to resign.
