UAE-backed separatists continue to mobilise troops in Hadhramaut

The UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) has continued to mobilise its supporters in Hadhramaut province to demonstrate against the First Military Region’s forces and to pave the way for its forces to control the oil sources.

Qatn city in Hadhramaut valley witnessed on Thursday evening a mass rally to demand the departure of the First Military Region forces affiliated with Islah Party (Brotherhood of Yemen), the replacement of the “Hadhrami Elite” forces and the formation of the so-called “Hadhramaut Defense” forces.

The demonstrations coincide with intensive moves by the STC to control the Hadhramaut and Mahrah provinces, eastern Yemen.
