The Yemen's Supreme Security Committee stated on Wednesday that in order to stop cracking down on Houthi's supporters in Sa'ada, several conditions should be applied on Houthi's followers including, Houthi's withdrawal from mountains, end of vandalism made by Houthis, the disclosure of the fate of foreign kidnap, and the release of war's prisoners.
Local sources from Sa'ada revealed that sixty five people were killed in clashes between the two warring sides in various parts of Sa'ada including 40 people dead in clashes in the area of Dhyan. It also stated that sixty people were injured in the Al-Salim's district.
The same sources pointed out that army forces and fighter aircrafts launched a massive attack on Houthi's centers in the regions close to Sa'ada airport. The region of Matarah, which is the main stronghold of Houthis, was attacked as well.
For their part, Houthi's followers pronged the legitimacy of the Yemeni regime and called on return to the Imamate regime, which was overthrown by the Yemeni revolution of 1962.
The two warring sides which signed a ceasefire before 24-hours exchange accusations of escalating the violet acts in the region.
Houthi's spokesman Mohammed Abdel-Salam said army forces and fighter aircrafts' massive attack, which started late Tuesday, intensified early Wednesday in Haydan's region. He said some missiles fell in residential areas, killing civilians, and destroying homes.
A local security official who spoke on anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media said that army forces arrested a number of Houthi's followers, but didn't give figures.
According to official sources, the five-year sporadic battles have claimed the lives of more than 1000 government forces and wounded more than 6,000.
It is said that thousands of civilians and Houthi's followers died in the same period, but the real number is unspecified.
