After he arrived in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Sam al-Ahmar sent a gratitude message to all who supported him during his detention by the Houthi group.

In the massage, al-Ahmar said that he will not forget those who helped him and promised to defend the homeland and innocent detainees.

Houthi gunmen released al-Ahmar on March 10th after he was arrested in late November of the last year during clashes between Houthi gunmen and al-Ahmar’s guards.

The release was implemented by tribal mediation headed by the leader of the General People’s Congress party, Sheikh Kahlan Abu Shawarib.
