The Sit-in Committee of Mahrah has warned against new moves by the Saudi-led occupation forces aimed at spreading chaos and violence in the province by their tools.
The committee’s spokesman, Ali Bin Mahamed, has called on all the people of Mahrah to reject calls by the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) for events aimed at dragging the people into conflicts, spreading hatred and provoking fighting among the province’s people.
Bin Mahamed said the STC’s calls are out of tune with the Mahrah population’s consensus, calling on the local authority, security and military agencies to shoulder their responsibilities in preventing chaos in the region.
He stressed that the sit-in committee “will not stand idly by nor allow militias to tamper with the security of the Mahrah people.”
Ali Bin Mahamed called on all free people in the province to be vigilant and work to thwart all movements and tools of the occupation.
For his part, Said A’afary, head of the political department of the sit-in committee, said he considered the STC’s calls a “call for chaos and fighting in Mahrah.”
“The STC’s call was originally an invitation for the people of Mahrah province to join the Scenario of Aden and its surroundings, which have been witnessing bombings and daily assassinations, fighting on land and areas, as well as liquidation of opponents.”
He noted that the call is “! part of a conspiracy to hand over the people of Mahrah, who have refused to participate in conflicts and reject foreign presence, to outside forces.
