The sheikhs of Bani Al-Harith in Sanaa capital called for a tribal meeting Houthis assassinated the senior Sheikh Khaled Hussein Al-Ra'i.

Local sources said that militias affiliated with the Houthi leader, Abu Nashtan, had recently assassinated Sheikh Khaled Hussein Al-Ra'i, following disputes between the two families.

The meeting will be on Thursday morning in central Sanaa. Sources said the tribes meeting will discuss how to respond to the crime committed by the Houthis against the sheikh Al-Ra'i.

Eyewitnesses said that Abu-Nashtan's militia fired a barrage of bullets at Al-Ra'i while he was driving his car, after which Abu-Nashtan's militiamen pulled him down from his car while he was injured and executed him directly, then they abused his body and ran over it with their cars.

The Iran-backed Houthis have escalated the assassinations against tribesmen in the Yemen's Sanaa.

Tribal sources were surprised by what the Houthi militia are doing in terms of their bias in dealing with issues with different measures. Noting that act is a black shame and practices that reflect the Houthi culture of revenge and terrorism.
