Mass protest against forces home evictions by UAE-backed troops in Aden

Dozens of families have demonstrated on Wednesday against the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) militias in the port city of Aden, southern Yemen, after they were expelled from their homes in Crater area.

Dozens of women and children called on international human rights organisations to return them to their homes in the al-Boumis” neighbourhood, located in Crater area, after they were expelled from them by force of arms.

The demonstrators confirmed that the STC militia had destroyed some of the civilian houses, stormed the doors of some of others, and forced their residents out into the open.

Over the past two days, the STC militia has expelled more than 150 families from their homes in Jabal al-Faras area, most of them poor families, to create military sites in the area.
