CIA successfully helps Islah Party official escape from Saudi Arabia

The United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) managed on Saturday to smuggle a prominent leader of the Yemeni Islah Party from his detention center in Saudi Arabia.

Media outlets reported, quoting Munir Al-Mawri, a Yemeni politician residing in the United States, as saying that the party’s Secretary-General, Abdel Wahab Al-Ansi, upon his arrival in Michigan State of US, began holding meetings with leaders of his party in the city of Hamtramck.

Al-Ansi arrived in the United States under the pretext of medical treatment.

Al-Mawri accused Al-Ansi of seeking to acquire the Yemeni community in the United States under the pretext of uniting the Yemeni community in America.

Al-Ansi is one of the Yemeni political leaders that Saudi Arabia has placed under house arrest, and his smuggling from Riyadh coincided with the escalation of Islah against the Saudi-led coalition’s efforts to root it out, indicating an American attempt to re-use it against Riyadh, especially in light of the escalation of differences between UAE and Riyadh in the war on Yemen.
