The UAE is supporting an army rebellion against the internationally-backed government of Yemen in the island of Socotra, a source in Hadi’s government disclosed Sunday.
Adviser to the Yemeni Minister of Information, Mukhtar Al—Rahbi, claimed in a message on Facebook that three units of the first Marine Brigade had actually introduced a disobedience against the reputable Yemeni government sustained by the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council ( STC).
Al-Rahbi included that the disobedience was led by Brigadier General Nasser Abdullah Qais, that had actually previously made numerous calls with the UAE delegate on the island, Khalfan Al—Mazrouei
The 1st Marine Brigade contains 4 battalions, consisting of the third department, an armoured squadron, as well as an air protection pressure, in enhancement to the Najd Brigade.
The disobedience came a day after Yahya Mubarak Saeed, head of the STC in Socotra, was sacked as well as changed by Nazim Qablan, in light of the current improvement made by government pressures on the ground after they took control of the Special Forces’ camp that was formerly under the control of the STC.
The neighborhood authority in Socotra has actually implicated the UAE as well as its delegate of getting the commitment of the battalions as well as spreading out disorder on the island.
