In the meeting the scholars and sheikhs demanded to form a preparatory committee to prepare for a general conference for all Yemeni tribes, while Sheikh Sadiq Ahmar said that if the country didn’t do its duties, the result will be a civil war.

He continued to state that the head of Yemen’s Scholars Commission, Sheikh Abdul Majeed al-Zindani called all the Yemenis and their army to unite their word, also he suggested to form three committees, one to extinguish what he described as the smoldering fire, then to form anther committee to meet the president Hadi, and the third one to hold a popular conference for all Yemenis.

Al-Zindani considered the tribe as the support of the state in case it is absent.

Furthermore, Sheikh Abdullah Saeter said that the state is responsible for everything that has happened, he called the Houthis to stop killing every day and he also called to turn the barriers into schools and the holder of guns into a holder of Doctorate Certificates.

In addition, the Sheikh Osman Magali described what happened as a Military incursion by the Houthis, and the support is from internal and external parties, he also emphasized that Houthis won’t stop their attacks here and they will reach all the Yemenis regions if no one stops them.
