Yemen’s president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, blamed Israel for planning and funding protests in several Arab states.
“There is an operations rooms in Tel Aviv with the aim of destabilizing the Arab world,” Saleh reportedly said Tuesday during a speech at Sanaa University, adding that the operations room is “run by the White House.”
“The wave of political unrest sweeping across the Arab world is a conspiracy that serves Israel and the Zionists,” he also said.
Yemen has been the site of anti-regime protests for the past two weeks—one of several Arab countries in which protesters have attempted or succeeded in deposing their rulers.
Saleh, who has ruled Yemen for 32 years, has rejected calls to step down.
