Tarek Saleh, the nephew of late Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh, was seen in Hodeidah with the city’s governor Al-Hassan Taher in the operations room to liberate the west coast.
Areas in the west coast have been recently liberated, such as Hays.
Many Yemenis think Tarek’s public appearance sends a clear message to the Houthis especially that Tarek is viewed as the “second man” after Ali Abdullah Saleh and that he’s played an efficient role in the uprising against the Houthis in Sanaa.
Earlier this month, Tarek, who escaped from Sanaa where he was leading battles against the Houthis, called on all parties in different fronts and with different political affiliations to reach agreements to serve the mutual aim of confronting the Houthi movement.
