Yemen’s Ansarullah revolutionary forces secured several areas in the capital Sanaa on Monday, days after clashes erupted with militiamen loyalist to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh.
A security source in Yemeni interior ministry announced on Monday that revolutionaries have secured several barracks as well as Al-Saleh Mosque in Al-Sabeen area.
Earlier on Sunday, the Yemeni ministry said that dozens of Saleh militiamen were arrested, stressing that the “conspiracy” plotted by Saleh against Ansarullah movement was contained and that security was restored to Sanaa.
Clashes erupted in Sanaa when Saleh’s militias attempted to take control of the Yemeni capital.
The former president’s militiamen, however, failed to do so and Ansarullah revolutionaries managed to restore security to the capital, accusing Saleh, whose whereabouts are unknown, of betraying an alliance aimed at confronting a brutal Saudi-led aggression on the Arab impoverished country.
