An intense fighting is ongoing between forces of the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) and forces loyal to Saudi-backed President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi in the Yemeni port city of Aden.

Since last weekend, STC forces have captured the presidential palace, the 4th Brigade Base of the Presidential Protection Forces and a number of other military sites in the area. According to reports, at least 36 people have been killed and over 300 others have been injured in the clashes so far.

Recently, the STC has deployed additional reinforcements to the area and it seems that the separatist movement will establsih a full control over the city soon.
