Shabwa is the secne of Saudi-led coalition’s mess
The UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC)’s militia on Tuesday attacked headquarters of special forces the exiled Hadi’s government in Ataq city, the capital of Shabwa province, southeast of Yemen.
According to sources, the so-called “Thu Yazan battalion” of the transitional council militia attacked Hadi’s special forces with light and medium weapons, injuring two soldiers and destroying several military vehicles.
Saudi forces on Thursday expelled Hadi’s officials in Shabwah province and the commander of the 21st Brigade from Al-Ghaydah airport and prevented them from entering the airport, informed sources reported.
According to the sources, the commander of Saudi forces at Ataq airport, refused to meet the Deputy governor of Shabwah Abdulqawi LamrMarouq and commander of the 21st Brigade of Hadi’s forces named Majdal Hanash Al-Ateiqi, and issued an order not to enter the airport.
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.
