Southern Yemeni separatists transfer weapons from Aden to Dhalea and Yafea

The UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) militia leaders started on Friday transferring large quantities of weapons from the city of Aden, which is under the control of Saudi-led coalition, southern Yemen, political sources said.

The sources confirmed that the STC militia began during the past hours to transfer the weapons from Aden towards the areas of Dhalea and Yafea.

According the source, the move came in anticipation of a reversal of the situation in Aden in favor of the Saudi forces or the so-called “the homeland shield”, which were formed from the Salafist and Al-Qaeda groups.

The process of transferring weapons from Aden by the STC leaders, came after the Saudi military delegation requested handing over the STC camps and counting the militia’s heavy weapons to withdraw them.
