Turkey urges citizens to leave Yemen amid political crisis
That deal aims to ease the power struggle in a country where the president resigned last month
Turkey has urged its citizens to leave Yemen due to the worsening security situation, despite a tentative deal among the country’s rival factions battling for power.
The Turkish Foreign Ministry published the warning -- the third of its kind since August -- late on Thursday, after most Yemeni factions had agreed to set up an interim presidential council to run the country for up to a year.
That deal aims to ease the power struggle in a country where the president resigned last month after Shiite Houthi rebels overran the capital Sanaa in September.
“Protests and public demonstrations are taking place. There is a possibility that incidents effecting public security could take place,” the Turkish Foreign Ministry said.
The ministry did not say how many Turks live in Yemen.
