“The events in the Southern and Eastern provinces of Yemen are the result of Saudi Arabia and the UAE’s occupation, specially as the two countries have an old plot to disintegrate Yemen again and turn them into regions under their control,” Habtoor, the former governor of Aden, was quoted as saying by al-Mayadeen news channel on Wednesday.
He said that Riyadh and Abu Dhabi are rivals in taking control over the Southern parts of Yemen.
Saudi Arabia launched brutal aggression against its Southern neighbor on 27 March 2015 in a bid to restore power to Yemen’s resigned president who fled to Riyadh after Yemeni people’s uprising in 2015.
Western countries, specially the US and Britain, are among key suppliers of weapons used by the Saudi regime to commit atrocities and war crimes in Yemen.
Over 14,100 Yemenis, mostly civilians including women and children have been killed during the ongoing Saudi-leg aggression on Yemen.
The Saudi military aggression has also taken a heavy toll on Yemen’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, mosques and factories. This illegal aggression has prompted retaliation from Yemeni forces including launching missile attacks on Saudi military installations in the country’s capital Riyadh.
