Saleh's son calls for revenge Saudi media

Heavy airstrikes by the Saudi-led coalition rocked Yemen's capital Tuesday, striking Sanaa's densely populated neighborhoods in apparent retaliation for the killing of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh by the Shiite rebels who control the city.

However, a spokesman of the Houthi movement told Sputnik that such a condition had not been announced.

In a televised speech, Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi called on Yemenis to rise up against the Iran-aligned Houthis.

However, in late November, the tensions between the former allies escalated and resulted in clashes that have already claimed lives of hundreds of people, including the ex-president himself.

A least 234 people were killed in fighting that the International Committee of the Red Cross described as the fiercest since the start of the conflict.

Saleh al-Sammad, head of the Houthi's political council, on Monday said he had ordered the security forces to "take steps against the saboteurs and all those who collaborated with them".

Former strongman Saleh retained the loyalty of some of the best equipped units of the army after he was forced to step down as president in 2012.

But that alliance unravelled over the past week as the former leader reached out to the Saudi-led coalition that has waged an air campaign against the Houthis since March 2015.

Commander of Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) commented on Killing Saleh in Yemen, "Thanks God, the conspiracy in Yemen was nipped in the bud" while Top Adviser to Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei Ali Akbar Velayati said that "he got what he deserved".

Arab League chief Ahmed Aboul-Gheit meanwhile denounced Saleh's "assassination" at the hands of "criminal militias", and warned of a further escalation of the war and Yemen's humanitarian crisis.
