UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash said on Saturday that Qatar had tried to mediate to save the Houthis.

He tweeted saying that the Qatari mediation to save the Houthi sectarian militia is well documented, and will not succeed, because it is against the will of the Yemeni people who belongs to its natural Arab environment.

He continued: “The Sanaa and Yemen uprising is an awakening from the nightmare of drifting behind the shady sectarian callings that are against the interests of the Yemeni people.”

A dangerous document recently re-circulated revealing the truth of the Qatari connection and support to the Houthis, through a letter by Badr al-Din al-Houthi, the father of Hussein and Abdul Malik, addressed to Qatar's former Emir Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, praising his generous support alongside that of Iran, which enabled them, according to him, to claim victory.

The Houthi leader promised the Emir of Qatar to continue the battle.

Qatar is the only country to have rescued the Houthi militias after the government forces were about to crush them. The former Emir of Qatar, under the guidance of Iran, was the first mediator to settle the conflict after the death of Hussein Badr al-Din al-Houthi in the third war in June 2006.
