Saleh and the Iran-backed Huthis, also known as Ansar Allah, have accused each other of inciting Wednesday's unrest. Arab media is reporting that the former president's supporters have gained control of key government installations in the capital, including the defense ministry, the interior ministry and Sana'a Airport.
The two groups are fighting a Saudi-led coalition that has intervened in a 2-1/2 year Yemeni civil war with a view to restoring the internationally recognized government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
"The General People's Congress and its allies hold Ansar Allah fully responsible for every drop of blood shed among the Yemenis. and warn against all acts that, rather than serve national unity, threaten our internal unity and cohesion", the party said in a statement.
"We will deal with them in a positive way and what happened to Yemen is enough", he added.
Saleh, who was forced to step down by a 2011 mass uprising against his 33 years in office, said Yemen's parliament, which is dominated by his GPC party, was the only legitimate power in the country and was ready for talks with the coalition.
