The Yemen's supreme security committee called Monday Al Houthi rebels to put down weapons and surrender themselves after their top leader and 13 other field leaders were killed over the last few days.
"The heads of the rebellion have met their certain fate, and the remaining are escaping now like the panic –stricken rats from field of battles after committing the most brutal crimes," said the committee in an official statement published Monday.
"Take this opportunity and return to your children, wives, parents, and live with them in security and safety," the statement added.
This call comes after the death of the rebels' leader Abdul Malik Al Houthi, has become almost confirmed. He died two days ago from injuries he sustained in an air strike on one of his hideouts two weeks ago, according to concurrent information many military and independent sources in Sa'ada.
