The Houthi militia have resorted to sowing discord amongst Yemen's tribes and fueling mini-conflicts … over fears the tribes may start a popular uprising against the militia.
Reliable sources told Okaz that Beidha [central Yemen] province saw the killing of four people including a child and injury of others in the past two days as a result of confrontations between Al-Mufareeh and Al Surayma tribes and the Houthi militia supplies both tribes with weapons.
He sources said the militia have also begun to fuel a tribal conflict in Ibb, Dhamar and Amran provinces as leaders of the militia have [secret] involvements in triggering those confrontations.
The sources warned that the militia have directed their members to eliminate tribe leaders and the coming days could see more such conflicts and assassinations.
