Yemen’s government makes final Aden return
Yemen’s government lead by Prime Minister Ahmed Obeid bin Daghr has left the Saudi capital of Riyadh for a permanent return to Aden
Yemen’s government lead by Prime Minister Ahmed Obeid bin Daghr has arrived in Aden airport on Thursday, sources comfirmed to Al Arabiya News Channel.
The government left the Saudi capital of Riyadh for a permanent return to Aden, sources said, stating that the return aims to liberate areas from Houthi militias and their allies.
The Saudi-backed government returned to the southern port city to secure and strengthen the state, as well as to "give confidence to Yemenis and encourage them to launch uprisings" against the militias.
President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi and his cabinet fled to Saudi Arabia, which led an Arab coalition against the Houthis in March 2015.
After 18 months of fighting, the Houthis and their allies control most of the north - including the capital Sanaa - while forces loyal to Hadi and the popular resistance control the south.
