After the killing of ex-Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh by the Houthis, Qatar cooperated with the Houthis to open an office for Al-Jazeera channel in Sana’a, the capital of Yemen, according to Okaz newspaper.

Undersecretary of the Yemeni Ministry of Information, Abdu Mughallis, said that Qatari media platforms such as Al-Jazeera openly put their weight behind the Houthi militias as part of Qatar’s broader plan to fragmentize Yemen and the whole region.

Former President Ali Abdullah Saleh was killed in a shooting on Monday December 4, after switching allegiances in Yemen’s civil war, abandoning his Iran-aligned Houthi allies in favor of the Saudi-led coalition.

Since June 5, the Arab quartet; Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain have turned on Qatar with a complete air and trade boycott, hurling allegations that the state supports terrorism.
