Saudi Send More Military Reinforcements to Aden
Saudi Arabia has sent new military reinforcements to Yemen’s southern port city of Aden, as part of Riyadh’s plan to end the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC)’s militia’s control of the city.
According Media sources, Saudi military and armored vehicles type “Oshkosh” arrived in Aden in support of the so-called “Shield of the Homeland” brigade and Tariq Affash in preparation to create a unified force from both factions affiliated with the head of the Riyadh-formed Presidential Council Rashad Al-Alimi.
Sources added that other Saudi reinforcements heading from the Wadea border crossing port to Aden include military equipment, which will be followed by human reinforcements.
The Saudi forces handed over Al-Ma’ashiq Presidential Palace to a force belonging to Tariq Affash and battalions of the “Shield of the Homeland” brigade to assume protection, in addition to other vital facilities in Aden as part of Riyadh’s moves to replace the STC, which it seeks to dissolve.
