The Houthis propose granting political asylum to the Saudis


The Houthi rebels that control most of Yemen have proposed granting political asylum to the victims of the Palatial coup at Riyadh.

The Crown Prince Mohammed Ben Salmane, who has just liquidated all clans capable of challenging the succession to the throne, is the one that initiated the war that Saudi Arabia is waging against Yemen.

Furthermore, we learn that, when Prince Abdul Aziz ben Fahd was arrested, he would probably have been killed, resisting the law enforcement agencies. A member of clan Nayef, he is related to Saad Hariri (through Saudi Oger) and Prince Al Walid ben Talal (through the Middle East Broadcasting Corporation — MBC).
