Member of the Supreme Political Council in Sana’a Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, has reacted to a statement issued by the UN Security Council on the failure of extending and expanding the humanitarian and military truce in Yemen under the auspices of the United Nations.
In a series of tweets on his Twitter Account, Mohammed al-Houthi described the Security Council’s statement as “extremist.”
ليس تطرفا فك الحصار عن اليمن
وليس تطرفا تسليم رواتب الموظفين من عائدات النفط
وليس تطرفا رفع الحظر عن المسافرين الى مطار صنعاء من جميع الوجهات

“It is not extremist to lift the siege on Yemen, it is not extremist to pay the salaries of state’s employees from oil revenues, and it is not extremist to lift the ban on passengers to Sana’a airport from all destinations,” al-Houthi said.
Houthi added: “Extremism is the statement of the Security Council.”
Al-Houthi concluded his tweets by saying: “If the disbursement of salaries is a form of extremism, then our armed forces will use another bank from which the enemy has already been disbursed before,” in a statement referring to the Yemeni long range missiles that have hit Saudi Arabia and the UAE many times prior to the recent ceasefire.
