General Mahmoud al-Subaihi, who had been placed under house arrest by Houthis when they seized Sanaa on Feb. 6, fled to Aden on Saturday.

Yemen’s defense minister has successfully escaped from a Shiite militia controlling Sanaa despite being under house arrest, Al Arabiya News Channel reported Sunday.

General Mahmoud al-Subaihi, who had been placed under house arrest by Houthis when they seized Sanaa on Feb. 6, fled to Aden on Saturday.

Sources told Al Arabiya that Houthi rebels raided Subaihi’s house and were looking for him in the streets of Sanaa.

Last month, Yemeni President Abdrabbo Mansour Hadi also fled house arrest in Sanaa and resurfaced in Aden, where he retracted his resignation.
