Sheikh Sayyid Abdul-Malik al-Houthi (born 1982)[2] is a leader of the Zaidiyyah insurgency in Sa'dah Governorate, Yemen. His brothers Yahia Badreddin al Houthi and Abdul-Karim Al-Houthi are also leaders of the insurgency, as was his late brother Hussein Badreddin al-Houthi.[3][4][5] He was claimed to have been heavily injured during an air raid in December 2009, a claim denied by Houthi spokesmen.[6] On 26 December 2009, it was claimed that Abdul-Malik has been killed after 2 days from a heavy air strike from the Royal Saudi Air Force.[7][8] The claim however was refuted by the Houthis which then released video evidence proving he was alive.[9]
