UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) declares state of emergency in #Aden #Lahj #Shabwa #Abyan #Dhale #Hadramout #Mahra #Socotra, announcing that they are taking over control all of southern provinces by establishing an independent rule from Hadi regime.
STC announcement comes after they barred Hadi officials from returning to visit Aden few days ago as well as a string of military rebellion against Hadi/Islah. Southern separatists believed that Hadi regime has failed to provide basic necessities and hence the need for self-rule.
It must be noted that contrary to some belief, STC doesn't controls all of southern provinces. Hadi/Islah forces currently still controls most of Shabwa (except the coastal part of Belhaf), Wadi Hadramout (northern part of Hadramout province including Seiyun), and Al Mahra.
