Ali Abdullah Saleh remained in the power echelons of Yemeni state for four decades- for the first time he assumed power in 1978. He was known as a ‘man of all season’ because he knew how and when to change alliances acoording to the situation. In the wake of Arab spring 2012, Yemen also witnessed thousands of protesters on roads against Ali Abdullah Saleh which he brutally suppressed but it was not successful and followed a civil war.
After being ousted from power he made an alliance with the Rebel group, Houthis but before his death on Monday it was coming in news that his alliance with Houtis has ended up on a bitter note. His political party General People’s Congress (GPC) confirmed that Saleh’s allies-turned-foes killed him by attacking with a rocket propelled grenade and then firing on his car, in Sana.
Before his demise he was accused of treachery and corruption charges. It was also circulating in news that he was trying to convince Saudi led coalition to fight against Houthi rebels.
The sudden death of one of the dominant political figure of Yemen has added more turmoil to the already politically volatile situation of the whole middle east.
