Activist decry abuses perpetrated by mercenary force in Aden

Activists on social media have complained about the escalation of abuses carried out by the so-called Security Belt forces in the southern port city of Aden.

Activists said that the Security Belt, a UAE-backed mercenary group, showed negative interaction with citizens after they started their latest security deployment in the city following Riyadh’s announcement of the new Hadi government.

Activists posted several pictures of the military pickup vehicles stealing cement bags from a building under construction in the city of al-Sha’ab.

They furthermore denounced the movement of Security Belt vehicle patrols.

Reports from international organisations have already revealed the militia’s violations against citizens as well as the existence of secret prisons where dissidents are held and tortured.
