BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 A.M.) – Two Saudi-backed forces clashed at the Aden Airport on Sunday morning after one of the groups refused to hand over this governmental installation to the other.

According to local reports, a southern brigade led by Saleh Al-‘Amiri refused to hand over the Aden Airport to the Hadi loyalists; this resulted in a violent confrontation that is still ongoing.

Al-‘Amiri’s forces had been in control of the Aden Airport since they recapture this strategic port city from the Houthis in late 2015.

In response to Al-‘Amiri’s refusal to leave the airport, the Saudi-backed Coalition began bombing their own allies to show support for exiled president ‘Abd Rubbah Mansour Hadi.
