Yemen’s Hadi in Aden after months in exile
A government source said Hadi would spend Eid al-Adha holiday in Aden and then fly to NY to deliver a speech at the U.N.
Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi landed in Aden on Tuesday, airport sources said, the first time he had been in the southern port city since he left for Saudi Arabia as Houthi militias closed in on it in March.
A government source said Hadi would spend the Muslim Eid al-Adha holiday in Aden and then fly to New York to deliver a speech at the United Nations.
Last week, Prime Minister Khaled Bahah and seven ministers returned to Aden to take up residence in the city, also after nearly six months in exile.
Meanwhile the Arab led coalition continued its airstrikes against Houthi militias in several Yemeni cities.
An alliance of Arab states intervened in the impoverished country’s civil war in March with the aim of restoring Hadi, and have helped drive the Iranian-allied Houthi militias back from Aden.
