BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:22 P.M.) – The Saudi and Emirati regimes are currently engaged in a proxy war in southern Yemen, as both Gulf nations clash over control of the Aden Governorate.

The Saudi-backed Yemeni National Army and Hadi loyalists have attempted to bully the UAE-backed Southern Resistance and Hadhrami forces in southern Yemen, causing a heated conflict that recently intensified after the Emirati government’s release of Ahmed ‘Abdullah ‘Ali Saleh (Yemeni ambassador to the UAE and son of former president), an enemy of the Al-Saud regime.

Adding fuel to the fire in southern Yemen, the Saudi-backed Yemeni National Army has aligned with Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), the UAE-backed Hadhrami forces claimed on Tuesday.

With the Houthi forces attempting to recover the Mocha Port in southwest Yemen, the Saudi-backed Hadi loyalists could find themselves in a world of trouble if the Southern Resistance and Hadhrami forces withdraw their support in this region.

Seems there’ll soon be serious Su-35, Mig-35 and Rafales sales in the Emirates…
If the Saudi-backed Yemeni National Army has really aligned with AQAP, the House of Saoud is sealing its doom thus, since AQ tried to murder members of royal family, ties have gotten pretty sour. AQ main backers have since became much more the Muslim-Brotherhood ruled Qatar and Turkey.
Thus, as we’re into a real-life ‘Game of Thrones’, any s**t is possible.
