Al-Jazeera correspondent Samir al-Nimri said that the situation in Ma’rib is “more dangerous than ever” and claimed that anyone who says otherwise is lying.
Al-Nimri explained that Saudi-backed puppet ruler Hadi, his deputy and his Prime Minister “do not care about the timing of the sale of crude oil, and supply it to the Saudi National Bank to share its shares. They only exchange congratulations in Riyadh hotels, and wait every day for a new leader who will be martyred, so they can send messages of condolences.”
Al-Nimri addressed the supporters of the Hadi administration by saying: “Do not expect any victory as long as the group that handed over Aden is still ruling us.”
The pace of collapses in the ranks of Hadi forces has accelerated over the past two days, with Sana’a forces advancing to the outskirts of Ma’rib city.
According to local sources in the province, the Yemeni army, backed by Popular Committees has liberated al-Talaa al-Hamraa completely after liberating al-Tabah al-Sawdaa earlier.
The sources pointed out that the army forces advanced towards the strategic al-Baliq mountain.
Moreover, the source confirmed that the Yemeni army forces have taken control over the al-Towma al-Ulya area, which is only 5 km from the center of Ma’rib city.
