Coalition forces’ entire brigade withdrew in Bayda, amid mutual accusations

BAYDA, Jul. 20 (YPA) – A brigade commander loyal to Saudi-led coalition in Nataa front in Bayda province directed the withdrawal of heavy weapons on Monday evening from the sites where there were stationed, informed sources said on Tuesday.

The commander of the “19th Brigade”, Ali Saleh Al-Kulaibi, directed the withdrawal of his forces before the attack of the army and the popular committees (Sanaa forces), leaving no more than 3-4 personnel in each site, according to the sources.

The sources attributed the reason for the brigade’s withdrawal to the differences between the parties loyal to the UAE and Saudi Arabia, and the mutual accusations that surfaced after the army and committees took control of those sites.
