Alsahwa Net- Yemen’s defense minister Mohammed Ali al-Maqdashi has said that the military approach is the only option to end the Houthi coup, pointing out that the Iran-backed Houthi rebels do not believe in political solutions.
In meeting with military commanders, al-Maqdashi ordered them to be prepared for fighting the Houthis, asserted that their crimes destroyed the Yemeni people and that they should be deterred through force.
Meanwhile, vice President Ali Muhsin Saleh has said that the Houthis impeded the implementation of the Sweden Agreement amid the silence of the United Nations which has not taken firm stances towards the Houthi Intransigence.
During his meeting with UN Secretary General's Special Envoy to Yemen Martin Girffiths today, Tuesday, Saleh noted that Houthis have refused to pull out from Hodeida’s ports on the basis of the Sweden Agreement.
He called on the UN and the international community to put pressures on the Houthis to implement the UN-sponsored agreements and resolutions.
