Yemeni government spokesman Rajeh Badi spoke to Anadolu Agency about the crisis in his country, saying that the national army and popular resistance committees had freed most provinces from the Houthis and are now looking to take back the cites of Sanaa, Amran and Saada. 

"We call on the Houthis to understand the lesson after their defeat in most of Yemen’s cities," he told Anadolu Agency speaking from Doha, Qatar.

"We urge them to implement UN Security Council resolution 2216," adding that "any solution outisde the Security Council resolution is completely unacceptable."
