British spies remain active in Yemeni province of Mahrah, sheikh claims

The British occupation forces in Mahrah have continued to train spies to target tribesmen in the governorate, according to a statement by the province’s sheikh al-Huraizy.

Sheikh Ali bin Salem al-Huraizy has been opposed to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates coalition’s presence in Mahrah for years, and has called on foreign forces to leave his province.

“Terrorism is a Saudi tool to justify its presence in Mahrah. We do not know what is happening at Al-Ghaydah airport, which is controlled by Riyadh, and by the US and British forces,” he told Almahriah TV .

“We will resume our peaceful struggle until the departure of foreign forces from Mahrah, and we will reveal to the world the truth about the occupation of the province,” he continued, adding that the Saudi-backed Hadi government’s Prime Minister Moeen Abdul-Malik Saeed and other officials are trying to legitimise Saudi Arabia’s ambitions in the governorate.

Last week, security media in Sana’a published a video showed the confessions of a British intelligence spy cell working to track down and monitor Sheikh Ali Salem Al-Hurayzi and the leadership of the national resistance in Mahrah.
