Ansarullah, Protest Movement Foil Saudi Plot to Control Southern Yemen

A Saudi plan to take control over Aden failed following swift action by the Ansarullah and the protest movements in Southern Yemen.

“After an agreement struck among Ansarullah, the Yemeni army and the protest movement in Southern Yemen in the Omani capital in June, Riyadh which counted much on the card of separatists in Southern Yemen, failed to reach its goal of gaining control of this region,” the Lebanese al-Akhbar newspaper wrote on Saturday.

The newspaper also revealed that Riyadh which couldn’t trust its forces’ capabilities in Southern Yemen, resorted to the UAE and 60 Emirati military officers went to a command center and received anti-armor missile and artillery support in al-Bariqa region to lead the war against the Ansarullah and popular Yemeni forces.

But the Yemeni army found and attacked the command center and the operations room in Dar al-Sa’d district in Aden, wounding and killing a number of military men, including a UAE officer, the paper said, adding that “this has created panic and fear among the UAE and Saudi forces and weakened their front in Southern Yemen”.

In a relevant development on Friday, the Yemeni army alongside the popular forces of Ansarullah took control over the Beir Ahmad military base, which is the main bastion of the al-Qaeda terrorist group in the coastal city of Aden.

The sources said that the Beir Ahmad Base, which was previously dubbed Khalid bin Walid, was the largest military base of the Saudi-backed al-Qaeda terrorists in Aden with more that 95 tanks and a large number of artilleries and heavy weapons.

The sources went on to say that the army men and popular committees are advancing against the terrorists’ positions in the Beir Ahmad region and have thus far cleared several buildings in the region from the terrorists.

In the meantime, the army is advancing towards al-Kara’a region and has pushed back the terrorists of al-Qaeda in the battlefront.

The sources confirmed that the terrorists of al-Qaeda have fled the battlefronts due to heavy offensives of the Yemeni army and Ansarullah fighters.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 101 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
