Saudi forces impose military cordon on Aden airport

The Saudi forces imposed on Sunday a military cordon on Aden port, the most important vital installations in the city, in southern Yemen.

Media sources reported the Saudi forces deployed in the vicinity of the port, which is under the control of the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) militia.

The sources confirmed that the commander of the Saudi forces stationed in the Maashiq Palace informed the acting head of the STC – the head of the so-called “National Assembly”, Ahmed bin Brik, of the necessity of the STC’s militia withdrawal from the port.

The Saudi forces are heading to impose their control over the various vital facilities in Aden after the deployment of a number of military armored vehicles around the airport runway, in efforts to hand over Aden to the forces of “Tariq Afash” and end the STC’s role.
