Latest mess in southern Yemen
Forces of the so-called security belt forces loyal to the UAE on Monday took control of al-Saylah area in Dar Saad district of the occupied Aden province, after fierce clashes with gunmen backed by Saudi forces.
Sources reported that Aden witnessed Sunday night until the early hours of Monday violent clashes in which heavy and medium weapons were used and extended to Sheikh Othman district.
Islah party’s militias on Monday arrest citizens loyal to the UAE-backed southern transitional council in Shabwah province, officials told YemenExtra.
The militiamen captured tens of citizens and moved them to unknown places in Haban district.The campaign of arrests comes after the arrival of exiled Hadi’s government members to Aden.
Head of Hadi’s government Moeen Abdulmalik on Monday arrived in the occupied Aden province on a Saudi plane.
Abdulmalik was received at Aden airport by a Saudi commander of the coalition forces in Aden named “Abu Ibrahim.”
The arrival of the prime minister in Hadi’s government in Aden comes after major disagreements that hit the first points of Riyadh agreement.
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.
