Units of Tarek Saleh's forces and Giants take control of Al-Omari camp overlooking Bab al-Mandab


Forces belonging to Brigadier Tarek Saleh and groups of giants took control of al-Omari camp in Thu Bab district, which borders Bab al-Mandab Strait in western Taiz province, southwestern Yemen.

A military source told Al-Masdar Online that a battalion of "Guardians of the Republic" forces led by Brigadier General Tariq Saleh and a battalion of Giants brigades entered al- Omari camp yesterday evening along with the remaining former protection personnel of the camp.

The move comes after days of clashes in Aden that ended with UAE-backed Forces of the Southern Transition taking control of camps belonging to the presidential protection forces and seizing all their equipment.

According to the officer supporting the moves, the move was intended to protect the west coast and the shipping lines of Bab al-Mandab and the Red Sea.

The source also denied any clashes with the previous protection of the Al- camp camp of the Bab al-Mandab Brigade, which was led by Brigadier General Louay al-Zamki.
