ADEN – Southern Yemeni academic Abdul Rahman al-Wali has described a speech delivered by the exiled former president Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi on the occasion of the anniversary of the October 14 South Yemeni Revolution of 1963, as a “speech of War” against the Southern Transitional Council (STC).
He noted the absurdity of the so-called “legitimate government” of Hadi’s speech, as his regime has killed scores of people in Shabwah, in “a clear indication of their bad intentions.”
1 قبل توقيع اتفاق في جده واعلانه رسميا يبقى كل ما نسمعه مجرد تسريبات لا ينصح بالاعتماد عليها، 2 بعد خطاب الحرب الذي القاه هادي امس فأننا نشك ان هناك (حوار) في جده، 3 عبث الشرعيه وقتل اهلنا في مسيرات شبوه دليل واضح على نواياها السيئه، 4 (سينتصر استقلال الجنوب لأن هناك ربا يحميه) .

Prior, Saudi-backed forces fired live bullets at a pro-southern independence rally in Nassab district, as well as launching a large-scale campaign of arrests in Beyhan district.
Hadi himself is a southerner, and used to serve in the armed forces of the Democratic People’s Republic of Yemen prior to eventually becoming a Saudi pawn and supporter of Ali Abdullah Saleh
