High tension against the coalition in Aden




A leading member of Islah Party survived ,Thursday ,an assassination attempt in al-Mualla city of Aden province, southern Yemen, a local official told YemenExtra.

The former member of Islah executive office in Aden and head of the Trade Unions Department, Dabwan Ghalib, was exposed to an assassination attempt with an explosive device in his car, according to the official.

Dozens of demonstrators on Thursday also held a mass rally in al-Buriqa city of the same province to demand the departure of the US-backed Saudi-led coalition from south of Yemen.

“The demonstrators expressed their anger at the policies of the coalition countries and the UAE in particular”,the sources added.

Aden city, which was occupied by UK but now under the control of UAE, and the rest of the southern cities witness an insecurity situation that increased the assassinations of Imams of mosques and security and military leaderships

The province of Aden also witnesses a security fiasco that escalated with killings, looting issues , in addition to others that never happened before.

The UAE took control of Aden under the pretext of confronting the so –called “Houthis” , part of the Yemeni army forces and supported the establishment and formation of armed elements  there.

A few months ago, Emirati-backed forces were fighting and killing Saudi-backed forces in Aden. The south is moving towards outright autonomy The entrenchment of a war economy is another significant obstacle to peace.

The UAE is likely behind the killing of some 27 Islamic clerics who have been assassinated in Yemen over the past two year,the Washington Post said .

All the clerics were killed by “drive-by shootings or killed near their mosques” added the Washington Post. As a survival strategy, the clerics have either fled Aden city, or restricted working hours in the mosques.
