Saudi Arabia has intervened to rescue the life of the ousted Yemeni president for the second time.

A Yemeni source has confirmed the intervention of the Saudi-led coalition to save the life of former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh, after his health suddenly deteriorated.

The source revealed that the coalition allowed the transfer of a special Russian medical team to Sanaa airport, to oversee and attend to his condition.

It may be recalled that Saudi Arabia had saved the former president’s life after an assassination attempt on the presidential palace compound six years ago, when the mosque in the complex was bombed.
