Southern Separatists Began Withdrawing From Positions In Aden Following Saudi-led Coalition Airstrikes

UAE-backed southern separatists have started withdrawing from the military positions they recently captured inside the key Yemeni city of Aden, a source in the Saudi-led coalition announced on August 11.

“We welcome the initial steps of the Southern Transitional Council (STC) and we are observing its complete withdrawal from the positions it had captured [in Aden],” the al-Arabiya TV quoted the unmanned source as saying.

The withdrawal of STC forces came after a warning airstrike by the Saudi-led coalition. Late on August 10, the coalition warned that the separatists will be targeted, if they didn’t withdraw from all the positions they captured from the forces supporting Saudi-backed President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi.

Aidarus al-Zoubaidi, head of the STC, said that the council remains committed to the legitimacy of the internationally-recognized Hadi government, in what appears to be a step to de-escalate the tension with Saudi Arabia.

Aden clashes erupted earlier this week as a result of an attack by Hadi forces on pro-STC protestors. According to the U.N., the clashes the claimed the lives of more than 40 people and injured 260 others.

Now with the STC fulfilling the Saudi-led coalition’s demands and withdrawing from Hadi forces’ positions in Aden, the conflict appears to be witnessing its final days.

    The Americunts are flying these missions, but not going to change the situation of the ground unless the Americunts put boots on the ground and get slaughtered for the Saudi pigs.

    Many Saudi childbutchers already eliminated in Adan war.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      No they don’t have SAMS or even manpads, the STC is a loose coalition of tribes armed by the Emiratis with small and medium weapons. But they can cause a lot of damage to the Saudi scum as they are Sunni locals. The Saudi cowards will now try to get their Americunt and British masters involved in a land war in the south which would even be a bigger disaster if the dumbass Americunt morons took the bait in desperation. This is getting to be a real nightmare for the Saudi shitheads and their Zionist overlords.

        STC if bow to Saudis and America then obviously they will become losers. Afghani Taliban have no SAM but still they have defeated US and NATO forces in Afghanistan. Those that take support of America and of their agents like Saudis, Israelis etc then they would be definitely losers.

    Vice president of STC, Hani bin Buraik denied any withdrawal. There was some rumors, but there are always rumors and fog of war. According to Taiz online, he refused Saudi request and said STC won’t withdraw even if Saudis bomb all of Aden and it’s people.

    (Sorry, in Arabic)

    Meanwhile, Hadi met with the Saudi king in Mecca. It’s also interesting to hear from Ahmad al-Maysari (minister of state/interior minister in Hadi cabinet), revealing how Emirate is directly involved in the matters and mildly criticizing both Hadi and Saudis for keeping quiet.

    Now Bin Buraik praises Houthis and threatens Saudis!!
