UAE pays money to Mayon Island’s sons to leave

TAIZ, March 13 (YPA) –A tribal sheikh affiliated with the Saudi-led coalition revealed on Saturday that a military leader working with the UAE had paid money to the sons of Mayon Island of Taiz to leave the island.

The sheikh Hamad Al-Shabwani explained on Facebook that the leader of the so-called Guardians of the Republic, Tariq Saleh, had paid great money to the Island’s sons in an attempt to depart them, so that Abu Dhabi continues to complete building a military base on the island.

An investigation circulated by Al-Jazeera channel TV last week revealed satellite images proving that the UAE had built aircraft runways on the Island, in addition to military constructions.
