Alsahwa Net- Militants of the separatist Southern Transitional Council (STC) blocked on Tuesday’s evening the Abyan-Aden Road, south Yemen.
Local sources said that the STC militants have blocking incoming and outgoing passengers to enter or exit Aden.
The sources said that the militants blocked the traffic at the Al-Alam Checkpoint and Dawfes Checkpoint, dug trenches and set up barricades and sandbags at the entrance of Aden.
The STC militants who seized Aden last August have been challenging the government to impose order in the city and other nearby governorates.
Both parties signed early last November Al-Riyadh agreement to end the rebellion and hand over Aden to the government’s forces.
Yet, the STC stood defiant to the agreement implementation and it conversely staged a new rebellion in Socotra island.
The government’s forces launched early June an open military campaign in parts of Abyan in a bid to recapture Aden from the rebels.
