" To defeat the new imamates "Houthis", we have to invoke the spirit of the 26 of September revolution" said al-Mikhlafi.
The Minister of Information in the caretaker government Muamer al-Iryani labeled the imamate regime as the worst that Yemeni people have ever experienced in recent Yemen's history.
Yassin Makkawi, President Hadi's advisor urged the Yemeni people to join efforts and align behind the leadership of President Hadi to counter Houthi's coup, aggression and eliminate the imamate's divisive notion.
