Hundreds of Shabwani elite militias protest in Shabwa

SHABWA, Feb. 08 (YPA) – Hundreds of UAE-backed Shabwani elite elements protested on Tuesday in front of coalition’s leadership headquarters in Ataq city of Ahabwa provinc.

About three thousands of Shabwani elite militiamen demanded UAE to pay their salaries.

They affirmed that UAE abandoned them in exchange for its interest in those brought in from the West Coast, vowing to escalate against the coalition if it did not respond to their demands.

The protesters decided to stay in front of Ataq airport gate, rejecting half-solutions, or what some called “anesthetic solutions.”
