SANA’A – In another instance of a long campaign of the Saudi-led coalition’s crackdown on all potential dissenting movements that disagree with the military occupation, UAE mercenary forces have arrested high-ranking Southern Movement leader Mohsen Hassan Azzan in the province of Shabwa.

Mohsen Azzan, the deputy chief of the South Yemen separatist organisation called the Revolutionary Council, was arrested by forces of a UAE-paid mercenary militia, without any official charges pressed against him, and brought to an unknown location.

This arrest comes against the backdrop of numerous protests all over the Saudi/UAE-occupied regions of southern and eastern Yemen, where thousands of of Yemenis have taken to the streets demanding the immediate departure of all Saudi-led occupation forces and the complete overthrow of the Hadi regime.

The United Arab Emirates was originally supported by most of the South Yemeni separatist movement, and has even propped up a military organisation called the Security Belt militia in Aden. However, after over three years of continued military occupation and increased colonisation attempts by Emirati corporations, the relations between the Southern Movement and the Emirates have soured significantly.
