Western Front

Elite pro-Hadi troops withdraw from Hodeidah and move on Aden in surprise redeployment

The Chief of Staff of the Hadi regime has ordered the withdrawal of some of the most elite military units of the pro-Hadi armed forces from the Hodeidah frontline, to be deployed in the southern port city of Aden. This highly noteworthy turn of events likely comes in response to Sunday’s reported UAE and South Yemeni separatist military takeover of Aden.

SANA’A – The Chief of Staff of the Saudi-backed Hadi regime, Mohamed Ali al-Makdashi, has ordered some of the most elite units of the pro-Hadi armed forces to immediately withdraw from the Hodeidah frontline and deploy to the southern port city of Aden, which is currently under UAE control.

According to military sources reported by the Yemen Press Agency, the military staff of the Hadi regime’s forces ordered three brigades of the elite Presidential Guard and the Giants Brigades (a mercenary group from southern Yemen that is loyal to the Hadi regime and opposed to South Yemeni secession) to leave their positions on Yemen’s West Coast and to retreat towards Aden.

The decision is highly noteworthy, considering the fact that Aden itself is far from the actual frontline where the Hadi regime is combating the forces of the National Salvation Government.

While there is no confirmation yet about the cause of the sudden redeployment, it is highly likely that the Chief of Staff’s decision is caused by the recent UAE takeover of Aden. Last week, UAE-backed South Yemeni separatists called for the expulsion of the Hadi regime from the city, and during the weekend a mass exodus of Hadi regime officials and functionaries was reported, as well as a UAE military takeover of strategic locations.

The Emirati move on Aden is in direct contradiction to official communication on the UAE’s role in the war on Yemen, in which is stated that they seek to return ousted former president Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi to power. Experts and observers believe that a direct confrontation between the Saudi-backed Hadi regime and Emirati-backed Southern separatists is highly likely.

US spy plane shot down in Hodeidah

Published

on

HODEIDAH -The air defenses of the Yemeni Armed Forces have shot down a spy aircraft belonging to Saudi-led coalition in the western province of Hodeidah on Friday, a military official told Yemen Press Agency.

The aircraft was down in the Faza area of the western coast while carrying out hostile acts, the official said.

The US administration on Sunday has admitted the downing of one of its MQ-9 type aircraft earlier this month, also in the western front of Hodeidah.

“On June 6, 2019, a US-MQ-9 aircraft was shot down, and we estimate that it was caused by a ground-to-air missile launched from the SA-6 air defense system,” a statement by the spokesman for the US Central Command in the Middle East read.

Yemeni air defences have shot down many of these spy planes, which are the latest from the US industry in the region, over the course of the war.
