The coalition subjects southern Yemen to hunger and intellectual and political terrorism: Southern Yemeni official
Head of the Political Bureau of the Revolutionary Movement, Fadi Baoum, said that South of Yemen is under underdeveloped occupation of the Saudi-UAE coalition and subjected to hunger and intellectual and political terrorism, adding that the coalition imposed a siege on all Yemenis.
Speaking to Al-Mayadeen Net Baoum points out that Saudis and Emiratis have entered the south of Yemen with a distance of 1,500 kilometers extending from the river to Bab al-Mandab. They control all the airports and ports. They have a Saudi and Emirati representative in each southern province, and they run all those provinces.
He also pointed out that the Southern Movement welcomes the invitation of the UN envoy if it is good, balanced and take into account their demands, stressing that he welcomes any solution.
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.
