Last week, Aden witnessed a series of protests condemning the killing of a young man in Mualla neighborhood by the forces supported by the UAE. The protesters succeeded forcing the force to announce the handover of the person responsible for his death.
The UAE, along with Saudi Arabia, is at the forefront of the alliance’s influence in the southern cities of Yemen. The Yemeni government has already accused the UAE of practices that undermine its authority, including the establishment and management of military and security formations outside the legitimate authority of Yemen.
