Al-Jabwani: We don’t have any security authority over Aden International Airport

ADEN, July 9 (YPA)- Transport Minister Saleh al-Jabwani in Bin Dagher’s authority loyal to the Saudi-led coalition, said that they have no security authority and control over the international airport in Aden.

“We have no control over the airport from a security standpoint,” al-Jabwani said in a press statement on Sunday.

The airport is controlled by  Aden Security forces and those forces loyal to the United Arab Of Emirates (UAE) occupation forces.

The UAE-backed forces have fully taken control over the city of Aden except for “Ma’ashq” palace the residence of the outgoing President and his government.

Al-Jabwani accused the United Arab Emirates of acting against Bin Dagher’s authority in the city of Aden before tensions escalated between the two sides.

Earlier, the UAE-Backed “Shabwani Elite forces” prevented Hadi’s minister from opening a project for a seaport in southeastern of Yemen.

The UAE is the second major ally in the Saudi-led coalition aggression on Yemen since March 26, 2015.
