  • Houthi followers shout slogans during a gathering celebrating Houthi advancement on forces loyal to Yemen's former president Ali Abdullah Saleh at Tahrir Square in Sanaa Yemen

The statement also hailed the serious stance taken to face the Houthi militias, calling on all the Yemeni people in the capital Sanaa and the rest of the provinces to take up a popular uprising against the Iranian-backed Houthi militias.

In Yemen, clashes between rival factions in rebel-held Saana continued for the fourth day today.

"We will deal with them in a positive way and what happened to Yemen is enough", he added. Arab media is reporting that the former president's supporters have gained control of key government installations in the capital, including the defense ministry, the interior ministry and Sana'a Airport. They spoke on condition of anonymity, fearing reprisals. In a televised interview, Salah also called for resuming relations with Saudi Arabia, if the Saudi-led coalition lifts its blockade of Yemeni ports and air facilities. He said his offer would require Riyadh to stop attacks on Yemen.

Officials working at the TV station say Houthis raided its headquarters.

The United Nations has warned that the country faces mass starvation unless the Saudi-led coalition allows more food aid to enter the impoverished country.

"The meeting calls for turning a new page with all the political sides. and to form a broad national coalition that will lay the foundations for a new era and unify everyone against the coup militia", the statement said.

The Saudi-led coalition - which has fought Saleh and the Houthi rebels since 2015 - last month imposed a total blockade on the impoverished country after a rebel missile was shot down near Riyadh.

The head of the Houthis' Ansarullah group warned that the biggest victor from what he described as Saleh's "sedition" was the Saudi-led coalition. "The priority has been and still is to confront the forces of aggression".

In response to Saleh's speech, Houthi leader Abdel-Malek al-Houthi stressed the need for dialogue in another televised appearance in Saturday, and called on Saleh to "be more mature".

Yemen's civil war has killed more than ten thousand people since 2015, displaced more than two million people, caused a cholera outbreak infecting almost one million people and put the country on the brink of starvation.

"The GPC appealed to the army and security forces to remain neutral in the conflict".

Stressing that Yemen's interests lie in avoiding sedition, the Houthi leader called on citizens and tribal fighters to focus on the battle against the invading Saudi regime and stay away from any provocative acts.
