Alsahwa Net-Gunmen led by former government official have stormed on Tuesday temporary headquarters of the Yemen’s Ministry of Information in Aden, the ministry said on Wednesday.
The state-run Saba News Agency quoted a source from the ministry who confirmed the incident.
It indicated that Ayman Al-Nawasri, who used to be the undersecretary of Information, brought a group of armed men who stormed the ministry’s building in Al-Moa’lla of Aden and changed locks of the administration offices’ doors.
A pro-separation Southern Transitional Council (STC) rebels have seized Aden city on 10 August 2019 and took control of the state offices and military bases.
The Information Ministry said that Al-Nawasri was suspended from work late last August and warned against any cooperation or work for him as he is illegal to do any job in the ministry name.
It added that the same person led another armed intimidation last July against headquarters of the government-run Saba News Agency Bureau in Aden.
Al-Nawasri supported by the STC militants has also seized the 14 October government-run Newspaper in Aden, following the STC control of the city, according to the Ministry of Information.
It concluded that this intimidation is part of the ongoing STC-led armed rebellion against the state offices that began on 10 August 2019.
