Yemen’s Ansarullah Movement Praised

A senior advisor to the Leader has praised the endeavors of the Ansarullah movement in Yemen and described the latest developments in the Arab country as "unprecedented" in its history.
Ali Akbar Velayati said, "With proper planning and persistence, Ansarullah movement has managed to overcome all the obstacles."  
He made the remarks in a meeting with prominent Yemeni clerics and figures on Saturday, IRNA reported.  The former foreign minister expressed hope that the movement could play a similar role like the one the Lebanese resistance group played in Lebanon in the fight against Israel.
The Ansarullah movement is affiliated with the Houthi tribe and represents independent popular groups in the country.   It played a key role in the popular uprising that toppled former president Ali Abdullah Saleh in 2011.  Ansarullah activists along with Houthi rebels took control of the capital Sanaa on September 21 after over a month of protests against government's endemic corruption and rise in fuel prices. Later the Houthis signed an agreement with other political parties to form a more inclusive government. Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi appointed Khalid Bahah, a former oil minister and envoy to the UN, as the country's new prime minister this week.
The Shiite Muslim Houthi group welcomed the move. The new prime minister is expected to form a government in coming weeks.
