STC officially threatens to escalate against Hadi gov’t

ADEN, Jan. 17 (YPA) – The UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) on Sunday threatened to escalate against the Saudi-backed exiled Hadi government.

The STC said in a statement that the escalation came in response to new decisions that issued by the Hadi government to appoint Ahmed Obeid bin Daghr as the head of the Shure Council in Aden.

The statement described the Hadi decisions as unilateral step and constituted a blatant dangerous coup against the contents of the Riyadh Agreement.

The council vowed to take appropriate steps in the event that the decisions taken without prior agreement will be not addressed.

“The STC renews its commitment to complete the implementation of all the provisions of the Riyadh Agreement, calling on the sponsors of the agreement to complete the implementation process,” the statement added.
