Today, Tuesday, the Deputy Executive Director of the Sana’a Center for Strategic Studies, Osama Al-Rouhani, revealed the most prominent reason for making the Houthi rebels the strongest and fastest-moving in the oil-rich Marib Governorate, during their latest escalation that began since last February.
He said in a tweet on his account on the micro-blogging site “Twitter”, which was monitored by “the Yemeni scene”, and titled with the question “Is Marib about to fall? It is a question that does not please my mind, but the loose and irresponsible performance of “legitimacy”, in addition to the divisions within it, makes Al-Houthi stronger in Marib fronts and is advancing at a surprising speed.
He added: Al-Houthi cannot be the strongest no matter how many fighters he mobilizes, but the other side is the one who weakens and disintegrates every day….the defect in the leadership,” referring to President Hadi, his deputy and the Minister of Defense.
This comes in conjunction with two sudden health statements by the President of the Republic, Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi, this evening, Tuesday, in which he praised, during a phone call with the Governor of Marib, Major General Sultan Al-Arada, the legendary steadfastness of the Yemeni army and the tribes in the governorate in the face of the barbarism of the Houthis, despite repeated calls to move all fronts, and cancel Stockholm, and the resumption of the Battle of Hodeidah.
