The Yemeni Southern Transitional Council has captured the Maashiq presidential palace in the southern port city of Aden, a military source told Sputnik.

“The Security Belt Forces, supported by loyal forces, established control over the presidential palace after four days of fighting with its guards”, the source said.

He pointed out that the Saudi forces had retreated from the palace to the coalition’s military base of al Barika, west of Aden.

Yemeni Deputy Foreign Minister Mohammed Hadrami has described the incident as a coup.

The reports come after at least 30 people were reportedly killed during clashes inside a camp of security forces of the presidential palace in Aden. The ongoing escalation of the conflict left dozens killed and injured in three days. Moreover, media outlets point to the possibility of a new front opening in Yemen’s civil war.

Earlier this week, militants supporting the Southern Transitional Council engaged in clashes with their former allies, pro-government forces in the city of Aden. The Yemeni conflict between the government and the Houthi movement has been ongoing since 2015.

My prediction was right for the Yemeni conflict despite all the trolls believing in Santa Claus coming here and sucking the a*s of this Fake news called “Al Masdar”.

The Saudi-UAE coalition is failing from itself, too many factions with strong opposites ideologies among each others will soon or later collapse, giving victory to the Shiites Houthis rebels and Iran. Now lets the slaughters begin : AQAP VS Pro-Mansour Hadi forces VS Southern resistance UAE backed forces VS ISIS LOOOOOOOOOOOOL

I hope you’re right about this falling out among thieves.
But how can you criticize the readership of AMN while you’re posting here for others to read?

Oh, you know, it was just a faction who thought they could do a coup. The Transnational Council are separatists who stormed the Aden presidential palace after having stormed an arms depot. The clashes killed 40. Security Belt forces retook control of presidential palace after negotiations (and likely a phonecall from MBZ telling them they’d better stop acting stupid or else…). The case is already closed. When it comes to the Iranian puppets, they now only hold the 6th or the 7th of the country while in 2015, after their coup against the legitimate government of Yemen, they managed to… Read more »

Rubbish. The Saudis had Hadi and his team under house arrest in Saudi Arabia when they parachuted them into the Yemen as their preferred leader of Yemen. Salah and his lot were against that as were the Yemeni Houthis. The latter two joined forces against the Hadi inserts who had the backing of the “Arab” coalition. Then Salah and his lot changed sides and the Houthis eventually killed that traitor. The Houthis are Yemenis and are fighting with few resources and a blockade against them. They fight as hard as they can because they are defending their country. The Saudis… Read more »
