Pro-coalition Hadramout authorities declare emergency state to face tribes uprising

HADRAMOUT, Jan. 05 (YPA) – The governor of Hadramout province in Hadi’s government loyal to the Saudi-led coalition, Faraj al-Bahsani, declared a state of emergency in the province.

Al-Bahsani’s decision is coinciding with the insistence of the Hadramout valley tribes to continue the tribal sit-in in the ‘Al-Ayoun’ area until the looting of the province’s wealth is stopped.

Informed sources said that the decision came hours after Hadi’s deputy, “Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar,” called “al-Bahsani”, and the latter failed to disperse the tribal sit-in.

It is noteworthy that media sources had revealed that the governor, Al-Bahsani, used a group of figures from the Valley tribes’ reference to sitting with Sheikh “Saleh bin Hariz” and the sit-in leadership in Al-Ayoun to try to persuade them to lift the sit-in camp, a matter that was rejected.
