Anwar Gargash tweets: ‘Houthis control the capital but lack political cover’
The UAE’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash, tweeted on Friday that the Houthi militia may have controlled Yemen’s capital Sanaa, but they lack political knowledge in this critical period.
برغم سيطرة الحوثي على العاصمة إلا أنه يعاني فقدان الغطاء السياسي في المرحلة القادمة، أصبح عاريا بواقعه الجديد، مليشيا طائفية ناهبة سارقة، أركان سلطتها الخوف والسلاح.— د. أنور قرقاش (@AnwarGargash) December 8, 2017
He continued saying that the militia is now “naked, facing its new reality” and that it is a sectarian organization that steals, with its main pillars being fear and weaponry.
The militia recently attacked a women’s protest on Wednesday in Sanaa who were objecting to the Houthi refusal to return the body of slain former President Ali Abdullah Saleh.
