I have an op-ed about the fighting that I will post when it becomes available.
Also the regime is increasing the religious rhetoric surrounding the fighting. First, Salih equates abandoning unity with being an apostate from Islam. That should really open the lines of communication.
Then, three clerics no one has ever heard of, issue a fatwa declaring that fighting against the Huthis is fard 'ayn. Very helpful. Numerous searches of Yemeni databases of clerics and inquiries to well informed friends in the country have led to little and the consensus seems to be that if one is a minor cleric with little or no following and looking to make some money then right now is the perfect time to issue a fatwa against the Huthis. Bonus points and extra cash if you are also from the south.
There is much more to print, but this is all the news that fits into my schedule.
