Yemeni Information Minister Muammar Al-Iryani said that the Houthis have taken over the house of late Palestinian president Yasser Arafat in Sanaa, Arabi21 reported yesterday.

Al-Iryani revealed the takeover on his Twitter account, adding that the Houthis also broke into the premises of several organisations supporting the Palestinian struggle in Sanaa and other governorates.

“For the [Houthi] militias, the Palestinian cause is a material for propaganda used to exploit the simple people, using slogans such as Jerusalem and refusing normalisation [with Israel],” El-Iryani wrote.

The Houthis use these slogans, El-Iryani said, to mobilise the Yemenis to get involved in the battles that serve their “reactionist” project.
