A leader in the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC)’s militia hinted to topple the Riyadh-formed Presidential Council based in Yemen’s southern port city of Aden.
“The last days of the leadership council,” the commander of the so-called “Southern Resistance” Abdul Nasser al-Ba’wa “Abu Hammam” said in a post on hos Twitter account
He added: “The leadership council will soon disintegrate and the legitimacy will be only for the transitional council.”
The threats of the leader of the transitional militia come in conjunction with the deployment of “Southern Resistance” militants several districts of Aden, in civilian clothes in preparation for the assault on Saudi forces.
The escalation of the pro-STC against Saudi forces in Aden, comes in response to Riyadh’s prevention of the return of the transitional president Aidarous al-Zubaidi.
