UAE-backed forces shut down mobile phone company headquarters in Aden

UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) militias closed on Tuesday the headquarters of the mobile phone company Sabafon in Aden city, south of Yemen.

According to media outlets, the STC gunmen stormed the company building in al-Mualla district and forced its employees to leave before closing the building.

The motives of the shutdown have not yet been made clear, but it is known that the company is demanding about half a billion dollars in taxes from the occupation government for its services to the STC in recent conflicts with its Islah Party rivals.
