Members of Saudi-led Hadi parliament flee Hadhramaut following mass protests

Several Hadi puppet government MPs have on Saturday to escaped to the city of al-Ghaydah city in Saudi-held Mahrah province, after protests against them broke out in Hadhramaut.

Local sources affirmed that the angry protest, called for by the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) in the cities of Seiyun and Mukalla, forced the parliament members to cancel their meetings in all cities of Hadhramaut.

Meanwhile, southern Yemeni activists have called on the people of Mahrah to also stage demonstrations rejecting the presence of these same MPs in their home province.

The activists considered that the Saudi forces in the province “would not be able to provide protection to the MPs in al-Ghaydah, in the face of the movements of the free sons of Mahrah.”

A number of activists loyal to the STC has furthermore vowed to thwart all plans and sessionsheld by the “group of parliamentarians loyal to the Hadi’s conspiratorial government against the people of the southern provinces.”

Earlier in the day, massive protests took place in the streets of al-Mukalla city on Saturday, aimed against the Saudi-backed Hadi puppet government in exile.
