Yemeni president orders launch of ‘Operation Arabian Sanaa’

Published: Updated:

Yemen’s internationally-recognized government said Monday it would grant amnesty to anyone who cuts ties with Houthi militias, after a key rebel ally turned his back on the Iran-backed insurgents.

The news has come following reports that the Yemeni President has ordered launch of a new plan named ‘Operation Arabian Sanaa’.

“The president will soon announce a general amnesty for all those who collaborated with the Huthis in recent months and who have retracted that allegiance,” Prime Minister Ahmad Obaid bin Daghr said.
