Ansarullah forces have specified new locations in the Yemeni capital to deploy their armored vehicles and set up new military checkpoints, eyewitnesses said.
They noted that Ansarullah has fortified its positions in Sana’a streets and alleys.
Mansour Hadi in a televised speech thanked Saudi Arabia and its Arab and western allies for their support, and hinted at the prospect that he and other government officials currently based in neighboring Saudi Arabia would soon return to Yemen.
In response, a source close to the Ansarullah movement on Monday rejected media news reports about Hadi’s return as part of the psychological war launched by the Saudi-backed front.
“Such reports are produced by the media affiliated to Saudi Arabia to boost the morale of the former regime’s remaining loyalists,” the source told FNA on Monday.
In sarcastic remarks, the source who is close to the popular movement said the Yemeni people are waiting for Hadi’s return to the country to punish him as a traitor.
“Any one who accompanies the Saudis in their crimes, the Yemeni people see him as a traitor who will be tried for betraying his/her homeland and nation,” the source added.
Meantime, the Saudi-led airstrikes against Yemen entered its 33rd day.
Saudi Arabia launched its bombing campaign against Yemen on March 26 in an attempt to restore power to fugitive President Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
The Monarchy’s attacks have so far claimed the lives of at least 3,010 civilians, mostly women and children.
Despite Riyadh’s announcement on Tuesday that it was halting the bombing campaign, the Saudi warplanes are still bombing residential areas across Yemen.
