JEDDAH: Yemen’s Minister of Information Moammer Al-Eryani warned the Houthi militia on Saturday against turning the country into a theater for conflict between the US and Iran.
“We warn Tehran’s mercenaries, the “Houthi militia,” against the consequences of turning Yemen into a theater of Iranian - American conflict, and endangering the interests of Yemen and Yemenis.”
The minister said in a series of tweets that statements made by Houthi leaders “since the moment Soleimani and Al-Muhandis’ killing was announced confirms their willingness” to use Yemen as a base for revenge.
He also warned the Houthis against using Yemen and its people as “scapegoats serving the goals of the Iranian regime and and its destructive policies in the region.”
Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani was killed in a US air strike on Friday.
