LONDON, March 25. /TASS/. Yemen’s authorities have asked the UN Security Council to support the military operation in the country aimed at ousting Houthi rebels, Reuters quoted the letter of Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi on Tuesday.

Hadi asked the UN Security Council to adopt a resolution authorizing "willing countries that wish to help Yemen to provide immediate support for the legitimate authority by all means and measures to protect Yemen and deter the Houthi aggression."

Since August 2014, Yemen has been hit by a severe political and security crisis. In late January, the armed groups of Ansar Allah forced the president and the government to announce resignation.

The rebels later took control of the country’s capital and several northern provinces. They also announced the adoption of the so-called constitutional declaration.

Currently, Hadi stays in the seaport city Aden, in southern Yemen. He continues de facto accomplishing the duties of the president and is recognized as the president at the international level. The capital Sana is now under the control of the rebels.
