The UAE occupation militias on Wednesday imposed a suffocating siege on the headquarters of Hadi’s governor and the central bank on the island of Socotra, cutting off the island’s main roads and streets, local sources reported.
According to local sources, the UAE’s militias set up tents in front of the gate of the “governmental complex” and the central bank branch in Socotra, and prevented entry and exit to these places.
UAE-backed armed militias attacked on Wednesday a headquarter of the governor appointed by exiled Hadi in Socotra province, officials told Yemen Press Agency.
The southern transitional militiamen cut off streets of Socotra’s capital Hadeebo, the officials said.
Hundreds of women rallied on Sunday in Socotra Island in support of UAE to protest against Saudi-backed exiled Hadi’s government.
At the rally, the protesters demanded the governor Ramzi Mahrous appointed by Hadi to resign under a pretext of obstructing the humanitarian and relief work reaching the province.
The coalition has been striking Yemen since March 2015 to restore power to Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed and wounded at least 600,000 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Despite the coalition’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters,part of the Yemeni army forces, the coalition’s bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
