Yemen separatists surround presidential palace in Aden

Yemen separatists surround presidential palace in Aden

A Saudi-led coalition that includes the UAE has been battling rebels in northern Yemen for almost three years on behalf of President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi's government.

But the ministers returned to Aden before dawn, after receiving guarantees from the coalition that the presidential palace would not be stormed, a government source said. The official declined to say whether the prime minister was to leave Aden.

It called on all parties to consider the national responsibility in steering the joint work with the Coalition for Supporting the Legitimacy in Yemen to complete the liberation of all Yemeni territories and defeat Al-Houthi militias of Iran and avoid any reasons that may lead to division and undermining the State's institutions in Yemen.

Brigadier Saleh al-Sayyed, who heads troops that have fought alongside the separatists since Sunday, announced his forces had seized control of the Fourth Brigade, the presidential guard in Aden.

Aden residents claimed that the STC fighters overpowered Hadi's forces in central Aden's Crater and Tawahi districts.

In a tweet STC Vice President Hani Bin Brik declared victory as the separatist forces took control of the city of Aden and the gates of the Maasheeq Palace.

Rifts exploded within the USA -backed alliance joining Yemen's president and the Saudi-led coalition fighting Shiite rebels, as forces loyal to each side turned on each other in fierce fighting this week. The war has been locked in a bloody stalemate for the last three years, with more than 10,000 people killed and some 2 million displaced by the fighting.

The Yemeni Interior Ministry said that military and security forces that were spread in the streets of Aden, were back to their posts and camps, adding that life returned to normal in several parts of the province, which lately witnessed tension.

Hadi s government has accused the separatists of attempting a coup in Aden, opening yet another front in the country s devastating conflict.

"The coalition will take all the measures it deems necessary to restore stability and security in Aden", it said in a statement on Tuesday.

"When the coalition launched its war in 2015 they said it was aimed at preserving a united Yemen, this is no longer the case".
