Sources: 3,000 Terrorists Arrive in Aden to Fight Yemeni Forces
Yemeni security forces disclosed that thousands of terrorists have arrived in Yemen to help the pro-Hadi and al-Qaeda militants in their fight against Yemen’s army and popular forces.
“Over 3,000 terrorists mostly from Syria have arrived in the terrorist-controlled areas in Aden,” Yemeni Security Official Lawa al-Azodi told FNA on Saturday.
Azodi reiterated that the pro-Hadi and Al-Qaeda terrorists are planning to compensate for their defeats in recent months.
Early in July, Yemeni sources reported that hundreds of mercenaries from Senegal had been hired by Saudi Arabia and sent to Aden to back up the Al-Qaeda militants and forces loyal to fugitive president Mansour Hadi.
The clashes between the Ansarullah fighters and the Saudi-backed al-Qaeda terrorists as well as the pro-Hadi militias continue in the Southern parts of the country as Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 129 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 5,321 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
The Ansarullah fighters and army troops have made major advances in their fight against the Saudi-backed al-Qaeda terrorists and forces loyal to fugitive former President Mansour Hadi across Yemen in recent weeks.
