The Security Belt Forces, backed by the UAE, yesterday prevented Saudi forces from entering the Port of Aden, Anadolu reported.
A source from inside the port, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to speak to media, said: “While the Saudi forces were on their way to the port in order to unload an oil tanker, the Security Belt Forces stopped them.”
The UAE-backed forces forced the Saudi militaries to return to their base because they had not coordinated their arrival with the leadership.
The Security Belt Forces is a paramilitary force based in southern Yemen and is tasked to protect the Southern Transitional Council, which is backed by the UAE.
On Saturday, the Security Belt Forces prevented an oil tanker from unload its shipment in the port despite having permission from the UN recognised Yemen government of President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.
