ISLAMABAD, April 8. /TASS/. Afghanistan’s field commander Gulbuddin Hekmatyar has said he is ready to send his fighters to counter Houthi rebels in Yemen, the Pakistani newspaper Express Tribune said on Wednesday.

"If necessary, several thousands of my fighters will go to Yemen to counter Iran’s actions in this country," Express Tribune quoted Hekmatyar as saying.

Hekmatyar heads the Hezb-e Islami political party. According to experts’ estimates, his militant groups constitute the second-largest armed Afghan opposition group. Hekmatyar, who served as Afghanistan’s Prime Minister in 1993-1994, was put on US terrorist list along with Taliban leader Mullah Omar and Al-Qaeda’s Osama bin Laden. The current location of Hekmatyar is unknown, but Western special services say he may be hiding in Pakistan.
