Soldiers in “security belt " Close the "Aden-Abyan" road to protest the delay of their salaries


Local residents and eyewitnesses told the "Al-Masdar online" that soldiers in the security belt forces in Abyan, east of the interim capital of Aden (southern Yemen), closed a major road linking the provincial capital Aden to protest the delay in the disbursement of their salaries.

Soldiers belonging to the security belt forces, some wearing military uniforms and others in civilian clothes, closed the ring road leading to Aden near the international stadium on the pretext of delaying the disbursement of their salaries, as local source and a passenger travelling towards Aden told al-Masdar online.

A soldier in the UAE-backed security belt forces, the second largest of the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen to fight the Houthis, said they found no other option for their leadership to heed their demands to pay their arrears, but said the closure of the road would not last long.
