Yemen Government-Rebels Fighting Footage Released

(al-Karar for Prod. and Distr.)
A previously unknown online media center called "al-Karar For Production and Distribution," released footage of fighting between Yemeni Shiite rebels and government forces in the northern Saada province. Fighting between al Houthi rebels and government forces broke up recently in Saada after a period of calm that followed a ceasefire agreement between the two parties in Doha last January. There were unconfirmed reports about the rebels' leader Abdul Malik al Houthi possibly being killed in fierce fighting on May 25th. The released footage shows a Yemeni army tank set alight, al Houthi fighters driving armored vehicles that seem to have been seized during combat.
