Yemeni Interior Minister: UAE won in Aden, Saudi Arabia silent on our slaughter
Yemeni Interior Minister Ahmed al-Maissari accused the Yemeni presidency and Saudi Arabia of silence over the coup of the UAE-backed southern transitional council against the Yemeni government in the southwestern city of Aden.
The forces of the Transitional Council, which calls for the secession of the south, and the security belt took control of the presidential palace in the interim capital Aden, and expelled the legitimate government from the city.
The control of the UAE-backed forces in Aden comes days after Abu Dhabi announced the withdrawal of its forces from Yemen, which observers considered an attempt by the UAE to release its responsibility for "a planned and planned action against the government of Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi."
"In a video from Aden before a Saudi plane took them to Riyadh on Saturday," al-Maisari said, "the Yemeni presidency has not been successful in its dubious silence of what happened and is happening in Aden."
He also criticized Saudi Arabia for its silence for four days and its coalition partner (UAE) slaughtering the legitimate government from vein to vein.
He added that 400 Emirati vehicles driven by hackers took to the streets of Aden and participated in the confrontations, and we fought them with our primitive weapons.
"We congratulate the UAE for the victory we have shown, but it will not be the last battle," he said.
Al-Maysari likened the looting of the southern transitional gunmen to the houses of their leaders in Aden with what the Houthis did in Sana'a, calling on the supporters of legitimacy to keep the levers of freedom in their chests, not to lie down to the owners of the destructive project, and uphold the values of justice, justice and coexistence.
On the other hand, Hani Ben Brik, Vice-President of the Transitional Council confirmed the stability and non-negotiation under the weight of the threat, but stressed the commitment to the legitimacy of Hadi and stand by the coalition.
The coalition of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates in Yemen on Saturday evening called for an "immediate" ceasefire in Aden, southern Yemen, stressing that it would use "military force" against those who violate it.
The coalition demanded "all components and military formations of the transitional and the security belt forces to return immediately to their positions, and withdraw from the positions seized during the past days, and not to prejudice the public and private property."
At dawn on Sunday, the Saudi news channel announced that the coalition confirmed targeting a region that poses a direct threat to one of the positions of the Yemeni government.
The United Nations said in a statement that 40 civilians have been killed and 262 wounded in clashes in Aden since August 8.
For its part, the Yemeni Ministry of Health appealed to enable medical staff to reach areas and neighborhoods, to help the injured and remove the bodies of the dead from Aden.
Hundreds of families have been displaced from the province by violent clashes between the legitimate government forces and the UAE-backed security belt.
