According to the Yemeni government, the Muslim Brotherhood tries to create tensions among the member states of the Saudi-led coalition against the Shia Houthi militias in Yemen. A certain state allegedly offered funds for the Brotherhood’s mass and social media in order to cause tensions between Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. These discrepancies should lead to the dissolution of the alliance that is fighting against Iran’s local allies. Hence, the Muslim Brotherhood supposedly criticized the Arab coalition and thereby caused massive controversy in Yemen.
However, Yemeni Foreign Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Abdelmalik Al-Mikhlafi officially stressed that the Muslim Brotherhood will not succeed and that the coalition will remain active in Yemen until it reaches its goals: construction, security and stability.
