Suppression of popular will caused war in Yemen, says Brotherhood

Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood has blamed the suppression of popular will as expressed in the Arab Spring revolutions for the current war in Yemen, reported Anadolu on Friday. Condemning the imposition of certain agendas by force, the movement said on its website that it is "monitoring" the situation.

"The reason behind the crisis in Yemen and the whole region is the coup against the legitimacy of the nations, and the suppression of the Arab Spring revolutions, bypassing the will of the people and imposing agendas under force of arms," it said. The Brotherhood called for dialogue, not violence, to solve the problems for the benefit of the people of Yemen and their revolution.

For the second day running, aircraft of the Saudi-led coalition have been targeting Houthi militia camps in Yemen in an operation dubbed "Decisive Storm". The stated purpose is to restore the legitimacy represented by President Abed-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
