UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — A terrorist on a motorcycle on Friday blew up a military patrol organized by government troops, a “security belt” in the north of the Yemeni city of Aden, resulting in deaths and injuries, Al-Arabiya television reported.
At the time of the attack, armed men opened fire on the security forces, after which an intense skirmish broke out between the two sides.
According to media reports, three attackers from the separatists of the Transitional Council of South Yemen were killed.
The situation in southern Yemen escalated on August 7, when troops loyal to the Transitional Council of South Yemen seized government agencies, military camps and government organizations in Aden.
After the intervention of Saudi Arabia, which, at the request of the internationally recognized government of Yemen, urged the separatists to vacate their positions and invited them to Jeddah to negotiate with the government, the Transitional Council formally agreed to the demands of Riyadh.

However, instead of freeing up positions in Aden, troops loyal to him began to seize other provinces in the south of the country. Since the beginning of the escalation, the Yemeni government has continued to accuse the UAE of providing financial and military support to the separatists and is demanding that Abu Dhabi end its policy of dividing Yemen.
