The UAE has begun establishing the first combat camp for the so-called Hadhramaut Elite forces in Hadhramaut province, media sources reported on Wednesday.
The sources pointed out that the UAE, which supports and finances military formations, set up the camp in Wadi Amad area, days after these forces took control of the area.
“The new camp is led by Brigadier General Fayez Mansour al-Tamimi, commander of the Coastal Defence Brigade, with the support of the UAE,” the sources added.
This move comes days after the UAE sent military reinforcements from militias loyal to it to Hadhramaut, in an effort to escalate the situation militarily in a number of southern provinces.
The commander of the forces loyal to the UAE, Haitham Qassem, arrived on a military plane from Abu Dhabi at Ba Rashid Brigade camp in Mukalla city, alongside two battalions of forces loyal to him.
