Yemen’s Ansarullah Announce New National Salvation Government

According to Yemeni news sources on Monday, the new government will be led by the former governor of Aden, Abdul Aziz Bin Habtoor, and is tasked with the administration of country's internal affairs and dealing with Saudi Arabia's relentless aggression against the impoverished nation.

It will be comprised of 35 ministers, including seven state ministers and three deputy prime ministers.

The new government is set to replace the Supreme Political Council, which was established by the Ansarullah and the party of former president Ali Abdullah Saleh earlier in the year.

The Ansarullah movement stressed that the new body's establishment will not hinder the UN-brokered talks, the last round of which ended in deadlock in August.

Meanwhile, at least four civilians were martyred by Saudi artillery fire on residential areas in the town of Shida in Saada province. According to Yemeni media three of the martyred were children.

Several homes and farms were also destroyed as Saudi troops targeted the nearby town of Zahir with artillery and missile fire.

The Saudi campaign began in March 2015 in a bid to crush the Ansarullah movement and reinstate the former Yemeni administration. The war has left at least 11,400 civilians martyred, according to a latest tally by a Yemeni monitoring group.
