Houthis recall conflict between Al-Baydha tribes and kidnap three tribal leaders


Militants of the al-Houthi group kidnapped three leaders of Bani Abbas tribes in Radaa, in the central Yemeni province of al-Baydha, in an effort to pressure the tribe and provide support to their loyal Ryam tribe, local sources said on Saturday.

According to Al-MAsdar online, the kidnapping comes in the context of pressure on the Bani Abbas tribe, which is fighting with the Ryam tribe, and the latter is one of the most important tribes of the Baydha loyal to the armed group.

He noted that this came days after the Houthis attacked Bani Abbas tribe with Ryam tribesmen.

According to the source, the war between the two tribes belonged to tribal wars that led to dozens of deaths and injuries, and stopped years ago, before returning with the control of the Houthis in the province in late 2014.

Ryam tribe is classified as belonging to the so-called "Hashmists" who immediately declared their allegiance to the Houthis, as they descended into one origin.
