Saudi-backed Takfiri extremists are set to attack al-Houthi Shias in the north of Yemen, al-Alam reports.
Takfiri militants have opened three different fronts in Saâ€™ada and other northern provinces to raid al-Houthi strongholds there.
One of the fronts is in Hajour District in Hajjah Province, another in Kataf District of Saada Province and the third in Hashid District in Ta`izz province.
Informed sources in Yemen say some 4,000 Wahhabi Salafists have been dispatched to the region to prepare the ground for a war on Houthis in the provinces.
The Takfiris also have established checkpoints to avoid transferring of food and aids to Saâ€™ada Province. They have also begun arresting al-Houthi supporters in the areas.
On October 23, several people, including two children, were injured after militants belonging to Takfiri groups opened fire at Yemenis in Hajjah Province.
Most Takfiris have identified themselves with the shadowy al-Qaeda terror network and are widely known to have committed countless atrocities against people opposing their views.
Yemenâ€™s Shia Houthi movement draws its name from the tribe of its founding leader Hussein Badreddin al-Houthi.
