UAE-Backed Southern Separatists Capture Several Bases In Aden, Besiege Presidential Palace

UAE-backed southern separatists captured on August 10 Badir camp, the last military base of the forces supporting Saudi-backed President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi in the southern Yemeni city of Aden.

RT’s reporter in Yemen said that the camp was the most important position of Hadi forces in the coastal city, which is considered the temporary capital of the country.

Earlier, fighters of the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) imposed control of the headquarters of the 3rd and 4th Presidential Protection Brigades in Aden.

Hani bin Breik, a senior STC member, announced that his forces are now besieging the al-Yamamah Presidential Palace, the last position of Hadi forces in Aden’s city center.

“The southern lions have surrendered the outskirt of al-Yamamah Palace … They are awaiting for the higher-command’s orders,” bin Breik wrote on Twitter.

Saudi Arabia and the UAE had condemned the clashes in Aden. The two states called for immediate de-escalation. However, their calls were widely ignored.

The clashes erupted earlier this week following an attack by Hadi forces on protestors supporting the STC. So far, more than 23 people, including 10 civilians, have been killed.

        You could be right, but something has gone horribly wrong. Arh well !!.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          What has gone wrong is that the Saudi dumbass arseholes failed to understand universal Yemeni hatred for them. The Sunni minority population of Yemen hates the Saudis as much as the majority Zaidis. The Americunt led indiscriminate bombing of Yemen’s civilians has sowed a harvest of revenge which will last a long time.

    There are reports that the AnsarAllah are supporting the UAE turncoats who want to expel the Saudi morons out of Aden region. Al-Mayadeen showed AnsarAllah flagged “technical” Toyota’s inside the northern suburbs of Aden directing the UAE allied tribesmen. Yemeni special forces officers in red berets are clearly shown directing some of the UAE paid militias.The Saudis have even turned Wahhabis against them, a feat only a complete shithead like MBS could accomplish.
