Saudi occupation forces bolster defence of Aden presidential palace as separatist attack looms

The Saudi forces on Monday tightened protection at the headquarters of the government loyal to Saudi-led coalition in Aden city, southern Yemen.

The move coincides with the escalation of tension with the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) militia.

Southern media, quoting its sources, reported seeing strange and new armored vehicles passing towards Al-Ma’ashiq Palace, the residence of the head of the pro-coalition government, Moein Abdulmalik.

According to the sources, the armored vehicles belong to the Saudi Special Forces and were sent to enhance the protection of the headquarters of the pro-coalition government in Al-Ma’ashiq.

Recent moves indicate that Aden is heading towards a new round of conflict.
