  2. "Qahtan represents the political voice .... If the international community wants to restore the value of politics in Yemen, and revive political settlement or sponsor any negotiations, it has to look for Qahtan." Qahtan is a 60 year old political activist and prominent member of the Islah.

Some speculations say he has already been among the many activists tortured to death. 

  1. Addressing a U.N. conference of humanitarian donors for Yemen in Geneva on Tuesday Foreign Minister Abdul-Malik al-Mekhlafi said that no matter how much humanitarian aid is donated to Yemen, only the Houthi rebels' return to peace talks will resolve the Yemeni conflict.

"We have to know that this humanitarian crisis is not natural one. It is human-made and a direct result of the Houthis' military takeover."

He said that the humanitarian efforts faced several hindrances in the past years. For example in 2017, the rebel militia  confiscated 65 vessels and 580 trucks loaded with food aid, blew up four other aid trucks, and seized thousands of food aid packs and sold them in the black market, and set up ports inside cities to levy customs, thus sending the prices of staple commodities soaring." #Source: The state-run news agency "Saba."
