Hadramout: Demonstration Demand Liberation of Oil Fields from Terrorist Groups
Thousands of loyalists to the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) demonstrated on Saturday in Mukalla city, the capital of Hadramout province.
The demonstrators called on the Saudi-led coalition leadership to dismiss the Hadramout governor in Hadi’s government, “Faraj Al-Bahsani,” and to combat what they called corruption and the looting of the province’s oil and fish resources.
They renewed their demand to liberate the oil exploration and production operations in Hadramout and Shabwa provinces from the influence of groups sponsoring terrorism and influential forces mired in corruption.
The participants in the demonstration stressed the need to expel “First Military Region” forces, affiliated with Islah Party, from the Valley and Sahara districts, and deploy the “Hadrami Elite” militia funded by the UAE in their stead.
This comes after the STC called for the so-called “Hadrami uprising,” in the middle of this month, to put an end to Islah’s seizure of oil and fish wealth in Hadramout.
It is noteworthy that the STC had threatened in the middle of last week with stopping the export of crude oil and targeting the oil vessels in Al-Dhaba port in Hadramout.
