The governor’s directive came a few days after the STC head, Aidaroos al-Zubaidi, issued a decision to dismiss him from his post and summon him by UAE to Abu Dhabi, where he still being held there.
The campaign’s implementation indicates that the governor remains influential, it also bears a sign of rebellion, and perhaps a coup threatens the future of STC, which is preparing for an escalation against Saudi Arabia, in response to tightening the noose on his authority in Aden, since transferring the government to Hadhramaut and continuing the policy of war services to the people in STC-controlled areas, specifically Aden.
These developments may have been the most prominent motive for STC to reject Hadi’s recent decision to dismiss the most prominent commanders of his special forces in the southern provinces, Fadl Baish.
In a statement, the transitional spokesperson Ali Al Kathiri considered Hadi’s recent decision as a declaration of war, citing his historical background that coincides with Islah party declaration to war on the south on April 27, 1994.
These moves also indicate that parties in the legitimacy, supported by Saudi Arabia, have started a campaign to weaken the transitional, which is exposed to daily protests escalating in size, region, and slogans, the last of which was in Crater, when hundreds chanting for STC departure and the exit of its camps.
