Two former ministers reportedly planning to form new military force opposed to Saudi and UAE invaders

Former Transport minister in the Hadi government, Saleh al-Jabwani, has hinted on Monday that a military council might be formed in southern Yemen to counter the Saudi-UAE alliance. This was reported by Yemen News Portal.

Al-Jabwani said that Ahmed al-Maisari, former Interior minister in Hadi’s government, is preparing to launch a “big surprise” in the coming period, which could turn the situation against the coalition and its followers.

Al-Jabwani’s tweets on his social media page came on the eve of a leaked conversation with al-Maisari, in which he talks about the presence of his followers in all parts of the country, and promises to destroy the new Hadi government headed by self-proclaimed Prime Minister Moeen Abdul-Malik Saeed.

Al-Jabwani and al-Maisari have have built internal and external alliances since August last year, particularly with Turkey, which enabled them to set up camps and train fighters in the provinces of Shabwah, Hadhramaut and Mahrah.

If these leaders do succeed in forming a military force, it could make the situation for the Saudi-led invaders even more dire than it already is.
