Yemeni Hussites said that they do not occupy cities, but protect them from terrorists

The head of the political bureau of the Shiite insurgent movement "Al-Husi" Daifullah al-Shami in an interview RIA News He said that the Hussites (Yemeni Shiites) do not invade cities, but "eliminate terrorist elements in the country."

Yemeni Hussites said that they do not occupy cities, but protect them from terrorists

According to the Shiite leader, the Yemenis themselves were active, "feeling the threat from the United States and the fact that Yemen could turn into another Iraq or Syria because of the proliferation of terrorists in all provinces." He noted that residents “formed people's committees to prevent foreign interference in the affairs of the country” and are fighting criminals.

“When they notice the intensification of terrorist and criminal elements who want to violate security and stability in the province, they stop these attempts”, Said al-Shami and added that “contrary to media reports, the Hussites do not plan the so-called" captures "of cities."

He also denied the rumors circulated by the media that the Hussites agreed with the President and that he would give them the northern part of the country.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, the Hussites entered the city of Ibb with a population of three million, without encountering any resistance from the security forces and the local population. On Tuesday, they occupied the city of Damar and the military base of the First Armored Division in the west of Yemen.

According to Al-Arabiya, "the rebels continue to strengthen their positions in Sana'a itself." Arab media write that "the rebels occupied one of the schools in the Shamlan district, located in the north of the capital, turning it into a warehouse for storage weapons and ammunition, and armored vehicles and several passenger vehicles were placed on the ground in front of the school. ”

Most of the schools in the capital of Yemen, by decision of the authorities closed in September. Hussites control the entrances to the city, occupy the houses of local residents, arrange weapons depots in abandoned houses.

As the agency notes, the cause of instability in the country was a significant reduction in subsidies for gasoline and other petroleum products, which led to a sharp jump in prices. This caused a strong resonance in society, especially among the Houthis.

      repeatIn a country with a parity of Sunnis and Shiites, the seizure of one of the parties to power threatens a civil war. Moreover, the armament of the population is high on both sides. The remoteness of Yemen from the main foci of the war with the Islamic State leaves it outside this interfaith conflict.

        Ku-ku, wholesale. We forgot Lebanon, there are also Christians of all currents in the sea!
        But the Yemenis - forgive me, Gd, unorganized beaters. They could already not only overcome strife but also powerfully bury the munafiks from Saudi. IMHO.

      Reluctance to "google" tell the Houthis in short - who is it?

      And hell knows, but found only this:
      Officially known as “Ansarallah” (“God's helpers”), the Hussite rebel group was born as a theological movement preaching tolerance and peace in the early 1990’s, according to Ahmed Addagashi, professor at the University of Sana'a and the author of two books about this movement, “The Husite Phenomenon” and “The Husites and Their Political and Military Future”.
      Addagashi told Al Jazeera that the Hussite movement initially had a largely broad educational and cultural vision. A religious group associated with the Zaydite sect of Shiite Islam has its stronghold in the north of the current province of Saad.
      “The group was organized as a meeting called the Forum of Believer Youth, in the early nineties. Then, an internal struggle broke out in her between the two currents; the former called for greater openness, while the latter called for a strong commitment to the traditional heritage of this Shiite sect, ”Addagashi said.
      Addagashi says friction between Yemeni security forces and the Hussites first appeared when supporters of the group held protests in mosques in the capital, which then president Ali Abdullah Saleh saw as a challenge to his rule. Saleh ordered the arrest of some members of the group and called on its then leader, Hussein Bader Addian al-Khusi, to ensure that the protesters no longer disturb the worshipers.
      “The first war began when Saleh sent troops to Saad province so that they arrested Hussein, who refused to restrain his supporters,” Addagashi said. Hussein al-Khusi was killed in 2004 after Saleh sent government soldiers to Saad. The internecine war, which lasted for years, ended with the signing of a ceasefire in 2010.
      In the year 2011, the Hussites were among those many forces that took part in the rebellion against Saleh.
      The group categorically does not accept one of the central recommendations of the national dialogue conference: the transformation of Yemen into a federal state consisting of six regions. According to the proposed reformatting, the Sa'ada province, historically a stronghold of the Hussites, should be united with the Sana'a region.
      The Hussites demanded a greater share of power in the federal government and that the North should be allocated to a separate region.

    Shiites, unlike Wahhabis, do not destroy cities, but offer to give them up, and when they give up, they don’t touch people, they don’t rape women, they don’t sell children and they don’t cut their heads.

    This is such a movement of believing youth, they also call themselves the Companions of Allah. opposition to the government of the country. They accuse the Yemeni ruling circles of collaborating with the United States and Israel. These two states, according to the "Companions of Allah", are the main enemies of Islam. In short, a dark story. The Taliban, I remember, also began with this.

        This is already suggestive ... one of the branches, a certain current, a breakaway direction, etc., in short, a young Muslim organization with the beginnings of a sect.

    Here it is ........
    The Americans are lowering oil not to put the RF sticks in the wheels (now FSU), but to put Saudi Arabia and Qatar in place (the USSR used to wave a club and then the RF) as it is possible and necessary to fight ISIS (enough to go about CA and Qatar (I read somewhere that the richest man. Arab)).
    Yes, the United States has pumped oil into itself for 70 years enough to occupy market No. 2 after the Russian Federation .......)

    This is a purely personal statement (mine), but there is a feeling that the enemies are not there ........
