Commission of Inquiry into violations: the multiplicity of security agencies and their non-subordination to unified command caused by imbalances and confrontations in liberated areas


The report of the National Commission of Inquiry into human rights violations confirmed that the multiplicity of security and military agencies and their lack of unified command is a major cause of many security imbalances and armed confrontations in the liberated areas.

The report, issued by the National Commission of Inquiry into human rights violations--a copy of which was received by Al-Masdar online--continued assassinations of mosque imams and political, security and military figures in the governorates of Taiz and Aden are among the most striking security imbalances in the liberated areas.

The report drew attention to a number of armed clashes "inside the city of Taiz, against the backdrop of a raid by the security services of areas believed to harbour extremist and outlaw elements, followed by clashes between government forces and elements of the Abu al-Abbas battalion under the command the 35th Brigade.

During the past days, Taiz witnessed a security campaign similar to the capture of wanted elements, a security campaign led by the governor to clash with the Abu al-Abbas Brigades, a cable to enable the security forces to achieve their objectives, arrest wanted elements and control the security squares east of Taiz.

The security campaign, which was carried out by the security forces of the Arab coalition in Abyan province, targeted al-Qaeda operatives in al-Mahfad and Modia directorates, the report said.

Security imbalances in government-controlled areas negatively affect the overall security situation in those areas, the report said.

"The failure of all security services and military entities in areas under the legitimate Government's control to have a unified command remains the cause of many security imbalances and armed military confrontations in many areas from time to time," the report stressed.

The Commission's report recommended that the Saudi-led Arab coalition in Yemen work with the legitimate government to "unify security agencies and military entities under the leadership of the Ministries of Defense and Interior."

The report also recommended that the Government impose further security reforms to help maintain security and stability, protect citizens, and train and rehabilitate the staff of the armed forces and security.

The National Commission for the Investigation of human rights violations on Thursday, in the interim capital of Aden, launched its sixth report on the facts and cases investigated during the period from August 2018 to January 31, 2019.
