By Wam

Arab Coalition warplanes intensified strikes targeting a secret meeting of Houthi leaders, killing several of them, reported Al Bayan.

Military sources said Houthi militia and forces loyal to ousted President Saleh are terrified by the presence of military units of national army and Arab Coalition on mountains near Sana'a. Therefore, the rebels have spread hundreds of their troops near the capital.

Meanwhile, Dr. Anwar bin Mohammed Gargash, UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, on Monday met Abdul Jalil Al Mukhlafi, Deputy Prime Minister of Yemen and Minister of Foreign Affairs, who is on a visit to the UAE.

During the meeting at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA), they discussed developments in Yemen and progress of the political progress as systematic hurdles created by the rebels continue to block international efforts and make it difficult to set the next date for the meeting.

The parties stressed the importance of continuing political efforts based on Resolution No. 2216, the Gulf Co-operation Council initiative and the outcome of the National Dialogue.

They discussed humanitarian developments and stressed that the situation should be addressed with resolve especially because the rebels continue to procrastinate over the issue.

The parties also discussed regional and international efforts for Yemeni issue.
