STC continues to destabilize Yemen in the shadow of the Houthi war


As if the Houthi devastating war in Yemen’s north is not enough, the Southern Transitional Council (STC) is working to destabilize the remaining government-held towns in the country’s south. 

The UAE-created militia staged riots in Lahj, north of Aden, on Monday (22 March) to overthrow the province’s governor Ahmed Al Turki and other officials loyal to Yemen’s legitimate President Abd. R.M Hadi. The militants attacked shopkeepers of northern origin and forced the closure of key businesses demanding payment of special taxes to their militia.

Tribal supports of the government from al-Saby’ha clan staged an oppositionist gathering and prevented the local coup.

In the middle of this month, the STC militants had launched anti-government riots in the eastern city of Sayoon and stormed the presidential palace in the southern city of Aden the following day, ending  the symbolic presence of the government in the UAE-occupied temporary capital city.

Reports say the militia are currently receiving modern Emirati military shipments in Socotra to consolidate the control of their sponsor, the UAE, on the occupied islands.
