National Yemen

President Hadi

By: NY Staff

Islah-linked media launched a harsh attack against President Hadi and Press Secretary Yahiya Al-Arasi as they published congratulations for Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad. The campaign to condemn the congratulatory messages was launched on Islah websites and ultimately forced the Yemeni News Agency to remove the congratulation messages. The campaign also accused the press secretary for belonging to the Alawi range and supporting the Houthis.

An Islah-linked website published that the Yemeni News Agency got the news of congratulations through Al-Arasi. The website claimed that with his extreme beliefs, Al-Arasi harms the national, regional and international reputation of President Hadi.
