Unknown snipers shot and killed Thursday in the South of the Yemeni capital Sana’a six militants of the movement «Ansar Allah» (Houthis), told Arab TV channel Sky News Arabia.

According to TV channel, the Huthis shootings by unidentified snipers continue in Sana’a a few days. On Wednesday at the hands of snipers killed 13 people. Regional analysts attribute this to the ongoing confrontation between supporters of the party «General people’s Congress», whose leader is the former President of Yemen, Ali Abdullah Saleh, the Houthis killed on 4 December, and rebels.

In Yemen in 2014, the ongoing armed conflict in which one side involved Houthi rebels from the Shiite movement «Ansar Allah», and on the other, government forces and militia loyal to President Abd rabbu Mansour Hadi. Power from the air and on the ground, supported by the Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia, and the Houthis until recently helped the military loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh. In late November between the Houthis and Saleh, a conflict broke out which led to the rupture between them and the death of Saleh on 4 December in a shootout with the Houthis.
