Yemen's embattled President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi has asked Gulf countries to intervene militarily against Houthi rebels who have seized the capital and are advancing toward his new base in the south, his Foreign Minister told Saudi media Monday."Time is not on our side," Yassin told Al-Hadath. He didn't say what Gulf military intervention would entail but said the Houthis' advance toward Hadi's base in the southern city of Aden must be stopped. Hadi was not harmed in the attack.Militiamen and soldiers loyal to Hadi have built up a security belt on the approaches to Aden in recent days, placing tanks and artillery on mountaintops overlooking the Houthi front line.Sunday, rebel leader Abdel-Malek al-Houthi said his forces will keep advancing south, referring to Hadi as a "puppet" of international powers.
