A commander of the security belt of the Southern Transitional Council (STC) in the city of Aden, Jalal al-Rubaie, threatened to expel the so-called the head of Riyadh-formed Presidential Council, Rashad al-Alimi from the Aden Ma’ashiq Palace.
Al-Rubaie, funded by the UAE, directed in his meeting on Tuesday, with the leaders of the militia in Aden, a veiled threat to the Alimi Council, and the government of Maeen Abdulmalik, with expulsion due to the non-disbursement of salaries to the STC militia for nearly 13 months by the government.
The “Security Belt Media Center” published about Al-Rubaie that the enemy would not allow to incite and harm the security and stability of the city of Aden,” in a clear threat to the Presidential Council.
Observers described the threats made by Al-Rubaie in Aden, with the green light from the “STC” affiliated with the Emirates, to expel the head of the council, Rashad Al-Alimi, and the failed officials who reside in the Ma’ashiq Palace.
They considered that the presence of the Council and the government in Aden was a step to drain on public money, which was supposed to be spent to improve basic services in the city.
