Pro-Hadi’s decrees demonstration in Aden, hours before Hirak anti-demonstration

Dozens of civilians demonstrated on Wednesday in Crater district of the southern city of Aden, the interim capital of Yemen, to express support for the decrees issued by the Yemeni President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi and his government.


Last Thursday, President Hadi issued controversial decrees, including the dismissal of the provincial governor of Aden, Major General Eidros al-Zubaidi and appointment of Abdul Aziz al Maflehi as a new governor, while supporters of al-Zubaidi have announced their rejection of the decree.


The demonstrators raised slogans supporting the new governor of Aden, and raised banners calling on the southerners to support President Hadi’s decrees and the Saudi-led Arab Coalition.


Today’s demonstration comes prior to another demonstration in which the supporters of the Hirak, pro-al Zubaidi southern movement calling for separation of south from north of Yemen, aim at showing their strong presence rejecting the presidential decrees.



Aden city is witnessing a security tension and preparations for the demonstration, in which thousands of protesters are expected to take part.


Security sources in Aden city, where the Yemeni government is based, said that an agreement was reached between the organizers of tomorrow’s demonstration and the government forces represented by the Interior Minister Hussein Arab to provide security to the demonstration.
