Saudi forces landed during the early hours of Tuesday the shipments of weapons at Aden Airport, which is under the control of the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) militia.
The leader in the “Southern Revolutionary Movement,” Muhammad al-Na’mani, said that Saudi Arabia sent military planes to Aden Airport, carrying various types of weapons and modern military equipment.
Al-Na’mani explained that the process of unloading weapons at the airport coincided with the arrival of new military forces to Aden from the eastern region of the city, amid intensive flying of drones in the sky of Aden city.
He said that the arrival of the forces to Aden came after the terrorist attacks on the STC militia in Al-Mahfad district of Abyan province, amid accusations to Saudi Arabia of being behind those attacks.
He pointed out that the STC had opened its former camps in Aden to prevent handing over the city of Aden to the forces loyal to Saudi Arabia.
This comes in the context of the tension between the STC militia and the Saudi forces, as the latter seeks to hand over the city of Aden to the forces led by the mercenary commander “Tariq Afash,” according to statements by leaders affiliated with the STC.
