A Yemeni army general who has joined the revolutionaries has threatened to attack Ali Abdullah Saleh's palace if regime troops continue to attack his forces.

General Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar made the threat on Saturday, a day after Republican Guards led by Saleh's son carried out attacks on the headquarters of Ahmar's forces.

Powerful tribal leader Sadiq al-Ahmar said the regime forces were sparking a war by carrying out “provocative measures.”

He accused Saleh loyalists of violating a truce that ended deadly clashes in the capital Sana'a in May.

Sadiq al-Ahmar is the head of an alliance of tribal leaders who have promised to protect anti-regime protesters.

Hundreds of thousands of people have turned out for regular demonstrations in Yemen's major cities since January, calling for an end to corruption and unemployment and demanding the ouster of Ali Abdullah Saleh, who has been in office since 1978.

The protesters also say Saleh should be tried for the crimes he has committed against the people of Yemen.
