Saudi and UAE fighter jets also targeted dozens of military vehicles belonging to Hadi’s forces while withdrawing from Zinjbar city of Abyan province towards Shabwa province, which resulted in the killing and injuring of 400 people.
Paid fighters of the so-called Southern Transitional Council backed by the UAE raided dozens of houses of Saudi-backed exiled Had’s forces leaders in Abyan and Lahj province.Dozens of the paid fighters, including leaders, were arrested also during the operation in Zinjibar district.
The UAE paid fighters announced that an emergency state was into force for 72 hours in Aden city, and waved death penalty against so-called traitors fighting in the Hadi forces’ranks.
Fierce clashes broke out on Thursday evening in al-Sha’ab city, located in al-Boriqa district in Aden .
“The UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council’s militias raided a camp of gunmen calling themselves al-Sha’ab city’s resistance led by Ayman Askar near Aden Refinery, which led to the outbreak of violent clashes,”.
Residents said that the clashes erupted violently by using various weapons, noting that loud explosions were heard and that the clashes are still ongoing till the moment.
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.
