Houthis: Brotherhood is cooperating with Al-Qaeda in Yemen

The Houthi group in Yemen yesterday renewed their accusation that the Muslim Brotherhood is cooperating with Al-Qaeda, the Anadolu Agency reported.

Abdul-Malik Al-Houthi, the head of the group, said in a televised speech that Al-Islah Party, which represents the Brotherhood in Yemen, is involved with Al-Qaeda's activities on the ground and in its media policy.

He also said that there is a joint coordination between field leaders from the Brotherhood and Al-Qaeda regarding fighting in the country.

In addition, he accused the Brotherhood of undermining the discussions and dialogue aimed at finding a solution to the ongoing impasse in the country. "In this regard, Al-Qaeda is carrying out attacks, killing and taking control of Yemeni cities, and the Muslim Brotherhood sustains it through its mass media," he said.

Anadolu was unable to obtain a comment from the Brotherhood.
