Rebels threaten to re­tal­i­ate

Cape Argus - - WORLD -

CAIRO: A top leader of Ye­men’s Shia rebels, Saleh al-Sam­mad, who are at war with a Saudi-led mil­i­tary coali­tion, is vow­ing re­tal­i­a­tion against the oil-rich king­dom over its dis­as­trous block­ade of the war-torn coun­try.

The fiery com­ments came even as Saudi Ara­bia said yes­ter­day that it would be­gin re­open­ing air­ports and sea­ports in Ye­men – those in ar­eas not con­trolled by the rebels – af­ter days of clos­ing them over a rebel bal­lis­tic mis­sile at­tack on Riyadh.
