Pro-transitional council protesters cut streets in Seiyun to demand evacuation of army troops from the city


Scores of protesters cut off a number of key streets in the city of Seiyun in the Hadramawt Valley (east of Yemen) Tuesday morning, chanting slogans against the presence of government army units.

A group calling itself the "Youth of Wrath", a subsidiary of the Southern Transitional Council, which calls for the secession of the south of the country and supported by the UAE, called for demonstrations and civil disobedience to demand the departure of the first military region forces and to be  replaced by the elite forces supported by Emirati instead, and Southern Transitional Council announced Its support for these steps.

Residents and eyewitnesses in the city of Seiyun told Al-Masdar online that the civil disobedience calls launched by a group called itself "Youth of Wrath " did not respond and the shops were working and the employees went to work and the protests confined to a limited number of youths cut some streets and burned tires, then units of the army intervened and removed the burning tires and reopened the streets to continue the movement inside the city normally.

The leaders of the Southern Transitional Council are waging large-scale incitement against the forces of the first military region, most of whose personnel belong to northern areas, and have assumed policing functions after the security institutions were systematically destroyed years ago.

The forces of the first military region protected the cities and areas of Wadi and desert of Hadramawt during the past years from the spread and control of extremist groups and suffered major attacks in which scores of members were killed and prevented the repetition of the scenario of the fall of al-Mukalla in the hands of al-Qaeda.
