The Houthi coup militias in Sanaa stormed on Saturday, the houses of Othman Mujali, the Minister of Agriculture and Irrigation in the Yemeni legitimate government.

Mujali who is also a member of the negotiating delegation in all rounds of consultations held since the start of the Yemeni war, told Al Arabiya English that: “The armed elements of the Houthi militias stormed on Saturday his houses in Sanaa and broke and looted their contents.”

The minister said the raid is a clear message from the militias- as a member of the government’s negotiating delegation- that the pro-Iranian militias pay no attention to peace endeavors and political solutions.

In addition, Mujali linked the continuous defeats of the Houthi militias on various military fronts, with the hysteria they are experiencing, and is expressed by the arrests against the population in Hodeidah port city and by the storming of its opponents’ houses in Sanaa, and the attacks on property and economic facilities.

On Friday night, the Houthi militias targeted a number of facilities in Yemen's Hodeidah.

In a major breakthrough and during a special session on Yemen at the United Nations Security Council, Martin Griffiths, the UN Special envoy said that the Yemeni legitimate government and the Houthis have shown a “renewed commitment” to work on a political solution and have given "firm assurances" that they will attend the Sweden talks.
