Two anti-STC leaders kidnapped in Aden

ADEN, May 03 (YPA) – Two leaders opposed to the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) were kidnapped on Monday in the center of Aden city, southern Yemen.

A press release issued by the so-called “Revolutionary Movement Council” confirmed the disappearance of a member of the movement’s executive committee in Aden, the legal advisor Alaa Al-Quba.

The release indicated that Al-Quba went out after dawn and did not return to his home, holding the “security authorities” fully responsible for his disappearance.

The Revolutionary Movement called for the governor of Aden affiliated with the STC to urgently intervene to release Al-Quba.

On the other hand, the STC militia abducted the leading member of the Revolutionary Movement, Madram Abu Siraj, after a meeting at the ‘Coral’ Hotel with an international organization dealing with issues of resolving conflicts around the world.

Head of the Revolutionary Movement, Fouad Rashid, considered the kidnapping of Abu Siraj a dangerous sign that heralds the deterioration and aggravation of political life in Aden rather than in crisis.

Rashid held the STC fully responsible for the life of Abu Siraj, calling on all political and civil forces “to condemn such repressive acts.”
