Military source reveals large movement to move military equipment out of Aden


A military source told Al-Masdar Online that a large movement of military equipment took place in Aden in the days following the takeover of government camps and institutions by the militants.

According to the source, the armed groups of the transitional movement transport heavy military equipment (tanks, armored vehicles and Katyusha vehicles) from the camps that belonged to the legitimate government, which became under the control of the transitional militants to areas under their control in Al-Dhlae’a and Yafe’a.

The source had earlier quoted residents and eyewitnesses as seeing tanks and vehicles being removed from Badr camp (39th Armored Brigade) and transported to the Transitional Camp of Jabal Hadeed.

Activists circulated picture on social media of large tankers carrying heavy military equipment in Yafe’a, which they said had been moved from legitimate camps in Aden.

The movement of military equipment increased after Saudi planes dropped light flairs on camps under the control of the transitional government at dawn on Saturday.

The movement recalls what Sanaa witnessed after Houthi militias took control of it in late 2014, transporting a large quantity of heavy military equipment and weapons from the army depots they had taken in Sana'a to their positions in the Sa'da Mountains.
