Columnist Mohammed Ahmed al-Mahraqah says in his article by the death of insurgent al-Houthi and downfall of the conspiracy life returned to the areas and districts of Saada, which seemed looking forward to a happy future and joy snatched away by the events returned to the areas. The governorate of Saada is now seeing a government and political efforts towards adopting the policy of future development after it has suffered very much from the al-Houthi rebellion for more than two months and it was damaged by the fighting events and military operations. The area deserves special care from the government to make for the suffering it has endured due to the events.
It seems that the most dangerous results the events have disclosed is that the republican system, unity, and democracy in Yemen are not far from or immune against attempts of targeting them and that there are external powers against progress in this country and its achievements.
