A security official affiliated with the Islah Party has on Wednesday said that the UAE still refuses to hand over Balhaf gas facility to forces loyal to the Saudi-backed Hadi puppet government in Shabwa province.
“Attempts to intimidate and send mediations will not work,” said Abdrabbuh Laka’ab, commander of the so-called Special Forces affiliated with the Islah party.
“Shabwah is our land and we belong to it. We will not leave it to anyone,” he added.
Laka’ab stressed that “the UAE’s exit from Balhaf facility has become inevitable.”
