Houthis arrest tens of their fighters on treason suspicions

Houthis have reportedly arrested tens of fellow rebel fighters in Ras Esa in Hodeida on suspicions of "treason" after the Arab Coalition struck a boat with member militants onboard, local sources told Al Meena News website.

"The militia also confiscated the mobile phones of all the arrestees after the Coalition air-struck  a boat carrying Houthi militiamen including key operatives," said the sources.

The defection of the former President Ali Saleh from the alliance with Houthis to the government's side and his immediate killing at the hands of the Houthis sparked a rift between Saleh's regular forces and the violent Shiit Islamist group. Some of Saleh's forces joined the internationally recognized government and a few joined the Houthis but the two sides struggle with the lack of mutual trust and sudden bouts of infighting amongst them.
