UAE-backed separatists denounce “escalation” by Saudi-backed Hadi government

The UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) has on Thursday denounced what it called escalation measured taken by the Hadi puppet government.

During a meeting attended by the Council’s President Aidarous al-Zubaidi in Aden, the STC confirmed in a statement that the Hadi government has reneged on many obligations towards the suffering of citizens, in stubborn escalatory practices.

The STC statement referred to the government’s insistence on “continuing its intransigence and deliberate violations to disrupt the course of the Riyadh Agreement.”

In another meeting of leaders of the council in Abyan province, the STC leaders called for the province to be “extricated from the schemes of chaos and revenge,” referring to Islah Party militants that back Hadi.

The STC leaders pointed out that it believes “terrorist elements have been systematically pushed to Abyan in order to take revenge on the province in particular and the southern provinces in general.”
