Mercenaries blockade Aden streets in protest over lack of payment by Saudi-led invaders

Dozens of Saudi-led coalition recruits have on Tuesday blockaded several main streets in the southern port city of Aden, according to local sources.

The sources affirmed that the recruits took the streets of Khur Maksar district, calling for the payment of their salaries, which have already been suspended for five months.

The mercenaries threatened with more escalation steps if their salaries were not paid in the coming days.

In last July, hundreds of retired military and security personnel in the southern provinces held a sit-in, in front of headquarters of coalition, to demand the payment of their financial dues.

Saudi Arabia has for months now refused to pay the wages and bribes promised to several units of their mercenaries fighting in Yemen.
