Sudden air attack targets military parade in Lahj.. Doubts raise about UAE complicity

عدن نيوز - Aden News:

A military parade at the base of Al-Anad, a strategic air base in the province of Lahj, south of the country, was subjected to an attack by a drone on Thursday (January 10).

This incident raised questions about the achievements of legitimacy and the alliance militarily, after nearly four years of war, and questions about how the Houthis reach this camp and carry out the mission.

The attack which coincided with the truce in Hodeidah, resulting from the Stockholm Agreement, resulted in the injury of senior Yemeni army leaders and the killing of six members of the army.

Doubts have arisen with the complicity of the UAE, because the air base has high equipment and its skies are controlled by coalition.

Yemeni political analyst Yassin al-Tamimi said: “The attack opens a lot of questions about whether such an attack was in collusion with the Emiratis, who control the air base.”

Speaking to Gulf Online, al-Tamimi did not rule out an intention to get rid of the military leaders loyal to President Hadi, who were present during the military parade.

For his part, Yemeni political analyst Mohammed al-Ahmadi held UAE the responsibility for the attack.

He said: “Those who is responsible for the attack are those who stopped the liberation of Taiz, leaving the Houthi militias with their positions overlooking the bases of the national army in the south.
