Yemeni activist and Nobel Prize winner Tawakkol Karman, confirmed that Saudi Arabia expanded and penetrated tens of kilometers into Yemeni territory, taking advantage of the conditions that Yemen is going through as a result of its ongoing war for the past eight years.
“They said they wants secession because the south has been occupied! Yes, it is occupied by Saudi Arabia and the Emirates. Saudi Arabia has penetrated beyond the border strip with Hadhramaut, about a hundred kilometers into the depths of Yemen, and the Emirates occupy many islands, coasts and vital areas,” Karman said in a post on Facebook
She continued, defying the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC): “Oh, people of independence and separation, say a word about this, only a small word. I did not tell you that agents should not talk about any independence of any kind!”.
She added, “for these agents the right place for is in prisons, not in governments and leadership councils.”
