Tareq Saleh
Not to be confused with Tarek Saleh.
Tareq Mohammed Abdullah Saleh (Arabic: طارق محمد عبد الله صالح) is a Yemeni military commander and the nephew of the late President Ali Abdullah Saleh. His father is Major General Mohammed Abdullah Saleh.[1] Prior to the national crisis beginning in 2011, he headed the elite Presidential Guard. In 2012, he was ordered to stand down from this position,[2] but re-emerged as a commander in the Houthi-Saleh alliance when the Yemeni Civil War broke out in 2015. When this alliance collapsed in 2017, Tareq Saleh commanded troops loyal to his uncle. Prior to the collapse of the pro-Saleh forces, the Saudi-owned Al Arabiya reported that negotiations were ongoing to form a military council in Saleh-held areas, which would have been headed by Tareq.[3] Following his uncle's death, reports emerged that the younger Saleh had also been killed.[4] However, these were never confirmed, and Houthi forces launched a manhunt. Saleh evaded capture, and eventually resurfaced in the Hadi loyalist-held governorate of Shabwah.[5]
