The Houthi militia has resorted to terror attacks in Saudi Arabia in an effort to divert attention from the quiet popular uprising in Yemen.

On Sunday, the Arab coalition announced the interception of a series of attacks carried out by the Houthi militia with Iranian cruise missiles and some 9 drones launched against Saudi civilian facilities, including the Aramco oil facility in Jizan.
Domestically, these terror attacks coincided with an unprecedented state of panic and alertness experienced by the Houthi revolutionaries, following the growth of the so-called “walls revolution” against them in major cities in the north and west, which the militias openly revealed. . through their leaders for the first time.
Governorates in northern Yemen are witnessing a state of intense tension and resentment that has come to light over the corruption, repression, criminal practices and hunger of the Houthi militias against the population.

The spark of internal rebellion
In conjunction with the massive Houthi attacks on Saudi Arabia, Sanaa witnessed meetings of Houthi security, intelligence and military leaders, and communication and coordination with neighborhood monitors and social figures in the tribal areas with the aim of containing the that the militias considered a “conspiracy from within”.
A local source in the capital Sana’a told “Al-Ain Al-Akhbar” that the Houthi militia formed a kind of operations room with residential neighborhood supervisors and neighborhood representatives to monitor and report any movement of citizens. and imposed security measures. protection in the accesses to the neighbourhoods, including the installation of checkpoints.

The Yemeni activist explained to “Al-Ain News” that the militias fear the effects of the global crisis over the Russian-Ukrainian war, as the prices of raw materials have jumped to unprecedented levels at a time when state employees and the majority of the population is living in a difficult economic situation after the militias plundered the income of state institutions and cut salaries for 6 months.
He pointed out that the militias raise broad slogans about their attacks with ballistic missiles and drones, affirming that these attacks are aimed at mitigating the impact of the economic crisis in their areas of control, under the argument that the coalition is creating the crisis, while the Residents of northern Yemen know that the Houthi leaders are behind the crisis, looting salaries and stealing food from the hungry, no matter how many false slogans are raised.
