TAIZ- Dozens of UAE armoured vehicles arrived Sunday in the southern and western countryside of Yemen’s Taiz province, as the UAE seeks to establish its presence through forces loyal to it in Taiz.
Yemeni sources talked about the arrival of a UAE ship to the oil port in Aden, which emptied 100 armoured vehicles, military cars and various munitions.
The UAE action comes a week after three UAE ships were seen in the port of Mocha, and the establishment of a port for warships behind al-Ton factory in Mocha, according to Lebanese Al-Mayadeen TV channel.
Mohammed al-Bukhaiti, a leader in Ansarullah, said on Saturday that “the UAE’s efforts to build a military port in Mocha confirm its intention to stay in Yemen, not to withdraw from it.”
He vowed that Yemeni forces would not keep silent on the UAE movements, demanding its full withdrawal from Yemen.
The UAE’s moves and reinforcements come in light of the armed tension between Hadi’s forces, backed by Islah Party factions, and militias affiliated to the so-called Abu Abbas group and those led by Tariq Afash, which are considered the tools of the UAE in the province.
