The defected self-styled information minister of the Houthimilitia confirmed that the Iran-backed rebelmilitia have committed heinous crimes against the people of Yemen since overthrowing the Yemeni state in September 21, 2014.
In a press conference in the Yemeni embassy in the Saudi capital on Sunday Abdulsalam Ali Jaber said that unless the Saudi-led Arab Coalition had intervened in March 2015 to counter the rebels, "things in Yemen would have been worse."
He said the Iran-backed militia have a malicious agenda that wants to strip Yemen off its Arab identity.
"Despite the facts that the Houthis control the capital Sana'a and other cities and that the Yemeni people canot express their rejection of the devastatingHouthi agenda because of the militia's savage brutality, the sentiments are boiling …and this popular silence might suddenly erupt like a volcano," he said.
He said the Iranian backers of Houthis want to turn Yemen's state institutions into warring islands and want to keep exploiting religion to radicalize Yemeni children and deploy them into the battlefields to rip Yemen apart.
He acknowledged that during the time he was forced to work as a self-styled information minister, he participated in drawing the militia's misleading (media) policies.
