Why do the Saudi-led coalition’s parts kill eachother in Yemen?
United Arab Emirates (UAE), main part of the Saudi-led coalition, backed by the US,-funded the so-called Southern Transition Council (STC) in Yemen’s southern province of Shabwah to organize a massive demonstration againdt the Saudi-backed resigned Hadi’s groups.
At the rally, the demonstrators demanded paid fighters loyal to Hadi’s groups and Islah Islamic party( Muslim Brotherhoods) to leave the province, while oil pipeline in the province was destroyed by gunmen.
Paid fightrs ,loyal to the coalition ,arrested a gang led by influential people in the Ma’rib refinery, who were smuggling oil derivatives in order to sell it in al-Dhalea province and the Rabat area in the city of Aden, under the control of UAE.
According to southern media sources, paid fighters loyal to the UAE at the Al Jalfoz points in the city of Ataq province, seized eight tankers loaded with the smuggled oil derivatives from the Ma’rib refineries, that are under the control of Islah party paid fighters, carrying an estimated 451,000 liters.
Deadly clashes, notably, erupted in al-Aqlah district between Islah party paid fighters and pro-UAE tribal forces called the “Shabwanian elite forces”.
The newly appointed “governor of Shabwah”, Mohammed Abdullah bin Adeu under the regime of exiled former president Hadi is reportedly facing several challenges, the most important of which is the security situation and chaos in the province.
Observers unanimously agree that the chaos in Shabwah is caused mainly by the security policies pursued by the forces of the so-called “al-Shabwa Elite forces”, backed by the UAE forces.
Local sources reported that paid fighters from the so-called “al-Shabawanian elite forces and southern Resistance recruits” funded by the United Arab Emirates forces took control over a military camp belonging to the top leader of Islah party, Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar , loyal to Saudi Arabia.
Leader of the so-called ” Shabwan elite” backed by United Arab Emirates (UAE) forces Ahmed Mohsen Sulaimani , for his part, threatened to launch an attack against tribesmento take over the district and eliminate on any threat by the tribes.
Tribesmen of Shabwah province declared a public mobilization to confront the coalition and its paid fighters in the province.
At a tribal rally held in Bayda province, Bayda governor Ali al-Mansouri and the governor of welcomed Shabwa’s tribes who are preparing to fight against the coalition in the province.
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.
In March 2015, the US -backed –Saudi-led coalition started a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 600,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.
Despite the coalition claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
More than 2,200 others have died of cholera, and the crisis has triggered what the United Nations has described as the world’s worst humanitarian disaster.
