A member of the Presidential Leadership Council, Major General Aidarous Qassem Al-Zubaidi, chaired this morning at the Presidential Palace in Ma’ashiq an extraordinary meeting of the Council of Ministers.
'The government will counter the Aden coup, similarly as the Sana'a coup'
The Yemeni government will counter the coup by separatists in Aden in similarly it did with the coup by the Iranian militia of Houthis in Sana'a, Yemens Information Minister said.
Members of the Southern Transitional Council militarily seized last Sunday Yemen's temporary capital from the internationally recognized government, locked in years long war with Houthis who seized the capital Sana'a in 2014.
On his Twitter account, al-Eryani said what happened in Aden was not only blow to the Yemeni social fabric but also to the pan-Arab front against the Iranian agenda.
He said that colluding with the new coup "delegitimizes the Arab Coalitions intervention" in Yemen.
