Soldiers in the security belt forces burn goods of peddlers from the northern provinces


A local source and residents told Al-Masdar Online that soldiers belonging to Aden’s security belt forces burned vegetable stalls belonging to citizens from the northern provinces.

Cities in southern Yemen are experiencing tension a day after attacks in Aden in which dozens of police officers and security forces were killed and  injured, and roads and city outlets were closed to people from northern provinces.

These practices are reminiscent of similar restrictions, deportations and arrests led by UAE-backed local forces against workers and vendors from the northern provinces two years ago.

A local source said that soldiers from the security belt forces burned goods of two vendors from northern provinces near al-Naqib Hospital in Mansoura.

Activists from the southern provinces warned of a wave of retaliation that could be led by elements in the belt against workers and simple people belonging to the northern provinces in light of the growing separatist rhetoric saturated with incitement against everything related to the north and holding it responsible for the security imbalances taking place in the city.
