The Saudi-led coalition responded to Saleh's statement saying that it recognised the efforts of his General People's Congress (GPC) political party to rid Yemen of the evils of "sectarian terrorist militias", Saudi state media reported.
The fighting subsided by the afternoon as Saleh supporters secured control.
"I call on our brothers in neighbouring countries ... to stop their aggression and lift the blockade ... and we will turn the page", the former president said in a televised speech.
Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
Earlier, Saleh's General People's Congress (GPC) party, accused the Houthis of failing to honor the truce and said in a statement on its website that the Houthis bear responsibility for dragging the country into a civil war.
The remarks came after Saleh supporters battled Houthi fighters for a fourth day in the capital Sana'a as the two sides traded blame for a rift between allies that could affect the course of a fight against the invading Saudi regime.
"We will deal with them in a positive way and what happened to Yemen is enough", he added.
"Our country is under aggression and the Houthis are the cause of this aggression due to their practices", he said.
Mr Saleh, who led Yemen for more than 30 years, was deposed in a 2011 uprising.
Three Houthi leaders have so far been killed in the clashes that began on Friday, revealed the source, while noting that there have been more casualties among the militia ranks than among Saleh's forces.
In a statement on Saturday the Saudi-led coalition praised Saleh for "taking the lead" in the conflict.
The coalition accuses Saleh of having betrayed his Arab neighbours by joining the Houthi-led forces they say are aligned with non-Arab Iran. It also called on supporters, including tribal fighters, to "defend themselves, their country, their revolution and their republic".
"Air defence intercepted a ballistic missile, fired by the Houthis towards Khamis Mushait", Arabiya said on its Twitter account, without giving details.
Yemen's war has killed more than 10,000 people since 2015, displaced more than two million people, caused a cholera outbreak infecting almost one million people and led the country on the brink of starvation.
In response to Saleh's speech, Houthi leader Abdel-Malek al-Houthi stressed the need for dialogue in another televised appearance in Saturday, and called on Saleh to "be more mature".
