A Houthi extremist is reported to have killed his two Sunni parents in the northern Yemen governorate of Mahweet on Sunday after labeling them as being "astray" from the beliefs of Shiit spiritual leader Abdulmalik Al-Houthi to which he has switched loyalty, local sources have said.
Mohammed Ali al-Harazi, 30, reportedly shot dead his father (in his 60s) and his mother Fatimah Kawkabah (in her 50s) as they were preparing to have a sunset meal at the end of a an optional fasting day as per mainstream Sunni beliefs sending a wave of panic in his village of Bayt Dhiyab within Mahweet's Hofash district.
Following the spread of the news, Houthi bloggers in Sana'a started disseminating distorted versions of the story, a tactic designed to undermine the credibility of the original story later.
Houthi militants especially those graduating from radicalization courses start alienating their family members and at times kill their parents.
