S. Arabia Renders Control of Aden to ISIL
Sources in Southern Yemen’s Protest Campaign revealed deployment of armed Takfiris in different parts of Aden and their Saudi-backed move to control the military and security headquarters.
A number of Southern Yemen’s Protest Campaign leaders told Al-Mayadeen news channel that Saudi Arabia supports the ISIL-affiliated terrorists in Aden financially and logistically to deploy their forces in different parts of the city based on an agreement made after secret meetings between commanders of the Saudi-led coalition and Takfiri leaders last week.
Based on the report, the situation in the Southern province of Taiz is not much different from Aden and Saudi Arabia is supporting the Takfiris in that region too to persuade them to fight alongside the forces loyal to Mansour Hadi, the fugitive Yemeni president.
Earlier reports in September also said that Saudi Arabia had promised to pay $1mln to its mercenaries in Yemen if they conquer the entire province of Aden.
“The militias of (fugitive president) Mansour Hadi who are supported by the al-Saud have forced the residents of Aden to leave the city through their terrorist attacks,” the preacher of Aden’s main mosque told FNA.
The preacher added that the attacks are the result of Riyadh’s promise that “if its mercenaries in Aden win full control over the province, they will be paid a one-million-dollar reward”.
Also, Last month, local sources revealed that the Saudi-led forces fighting against the Yemeni government had hired foreign mercenaries, specially Sudanese soldiers, after they were badly defeated in the Southern port of Aden.
“Soldiers of the Sudanese army along with their vehicles were seen moving in several areas across the Southern province of Aden,” the Arabic-language Al-Manar TV quoted local sources as saying.
The sources reiterated that the move comes after heavy losses were inflicted upon the Emirati forces operating in Yemen as part of the Saudi-led coalition.
But senior Yemeni revolution leaders underlined their determination to regain control of Aden province from the al-Qaeda and pro-Hadi forces.
“Despite the fact that we have withdrawn from Aden, we are still present there and all terrorist, Saudi coalition and pro-Hadi forces are within the range of our weapons,” Nayef Qayes, the deputy head of Yemen’s revolution council, told FNA early October.
He underscored that the Yemeni revolutionary and popular forces will return to Aden soon to regain their territories from the foreign occupiers and enemies.
Also representative of Ansarullah resistance group in Yemen peace talks, Abdolrahman Mokhtar, announced that the revolutionary forces have held captive several Saudi and foreign nationals who were fighting against the Yemeni people.
