At a time when the Huthi group failed to maintain the living conditions of the Yemeni citizen in Sanaa and the cities under their control, there were rising demands for revolution and demonstrations against the rule of the armed group.
“We want peace with dignity and we do not accept capitulation and surrender at a time when the enemy is moving with all its energies and capabilities,” said the leader of the terrorist-designated militia, Abdulmalik al-Houthi, on Thursday evening, October 4, 2018.
Human rights activists called on to demonstrate on Saturday in the Tahrir Square in central Sanaa against the militia. In a very similar scene to demonstrations «dose» in which the Yemenis took streets against the government of «Mohammed Salem Basandwa», the former Yemeni Prime Minister; to protest the decision to lift subsidies on derivatives Oil.
Which was exploited by the Houthi group, and besieged Sanaa and occupied it on 21 September 2014, a scene that was soon replicated in the Yemeni capital through the «October demonstrations».
Observers explained to El-Marga’a that Houthi’s speech revealed an economic crisis experienced by the group, and the decline of funding under the US sanctions on Iran and Hezbollah allies Houthi, indicating that Huthi is in a weak economically situation, although it still uses the violent speech.
“The speech of Abdul-Malik al-Houthi strongly reveals his fears of the possibility of a hunger revolution, which began to take shape in Sanaa and the areas under the control of Houthi,” said the Yemeni politician Kamel al-Khoudani.
Al-Khudani said in a statement to El-Marga’a that the Yemeni street is witnessing the disappearance of fuel, in addition to the high prices of food commodities, accompanied by the continuous collapse in the value of the local currency, and the continued looting of the Houthis of Yemen’s wealth.
He continued: «Houthi described the demonstrations in the Yemeni street, that they are:« the owners of the chaotic rotten hate words», indicates that the militia are afraid to fall, in light of the strong security grip on the capital».
The Yemeni politician added that the crises have increased on the Huthis because of the victories achieved by the coalition and the resistance and the Yemeni army on the fronts of fighting, especially in Saada and the West Coast. In addition to the sanctions imposed by America on Iran and Hezbollah, and continued: «Huthis in the stage of clinical death».
For his part, the political analyst Mahmoud Jaber said that the Houthi group is in a major economic impasse, in addition to the high tide of anger within the Yemeni street, and this is evident in his speech last Thursday evening; the word “economy” used in his speech more than once.
He added that the al-Houthi’s threat to the demonstrations in Sanaa highlights the fact that the group is in a public predicament because it claimed that it went out in September 2014 to reject high prices and improve living conditions. While they stand today against people and threatening them with killing.
Jabir stressed that al-Houthi still follows the upper-class language in their speech to the Yemeni people and the government. Which is not in the interest of the group’s future. It can be said that the Huthis are living a real crisis that will bring them to an end.
