Senior commander loyal to coalition accuses Saudi Arabia of backing conflicts in Yemen

SANAA, March 26 (YPA) – A prominent field leader in the Saudi-backed Islah Party, Abdullah al-Okaimi, on Thursday accused Saudi Arabia of backing conflicts and sedition in Yemen.

Okaimi, in his Twitter account, said, “It is not appropriate for Saudi Arabia to unleash its leaders who are working to revive conflicts and support sedition projects between Yemenis.”

He added that “Saudi Arabia’s security and stability cannot be achieved without the stability of Yemen,” in an indirect threat to the Saudi forces in Marib.

Al-Okimi’s attack on Saudi Arabia came after Saudi Ambassador Mohammed Al Jaber in Aden criticized the Islah party militants’ maneuver in Shakra district of Abyan province earlier.
