Who Killed Al-Sammad?
SMA News – Adan – Report According to the announcement of Abd Al-Malek Al-Houthi, leader of Al-Houthi Militias, concerning the killing of Saleh Al-Sammad, it is clear that the militia is in big confusion. The the announcement, broadcasted on Al-Maseera TV Channel, loyal to Al-Houthis, indicated that Al-Sammad was killed in Al-Hodeida last Thursday during an air raid. On the contrary, other TV channels loyal to the militias broadcasted news today showing Al-Sammad during field visits to local armories in Al-Hodeida. It is well-known that Al-Houthi militias, loyal to Iran, have media tools that rarely mistake. But the confusion about the timing of death supports rumors about the killing of Al-Sammad by one of the conflicting parties inside the militias. It is notworthy that a severe conflict broke between high rank leaders of the militias, especially between the sectarian extremist wing headed by Mohamed Ali Al-Houthi, leader of the revolutionary commissions, and the less extremist wing headed by Al-Sammad who was considered as leader of the tribal wing, away from what is known as “Ashraf”.
