Al-Qaeda (AQ) and Daesh (ISIS) is stronger than it has ever been in an environment of state collapse, growing sectarianism, security vacuums and escalating war.
Suicide bombings in Aden City is not surprising news. The reality of the security chaos makes the repetition of suicide bombings is normal. And this time is a double suicide bombing with two car bombs targeting a camp for the so-called anti-terrorism in Tawahi District.
Al-Qaeda and Daesh was a small yet branch of terrorism in Yemen, emerged arguably as the biggest winners of the Saudi aggression that followed, morphing into an insurgent movement capable of controlling territory.
The war has opened space for it to operate in places that have experienced aggressive violence by Saudi Arabia and the UAE in the south through assassinations and bombings in Aden and other southern provinces.
The UAE forces have released Takfiri elements, including eleven Al-Qaeda leaders.
Virtually all foreign fighting parties (Saudi Arabia and its allies) in Yemen claim to be enemies of AQAP and IS, yet all have contributed to their rise, as well as their Gulf backers, have poured fuel on the fire.
The continuation of an increasingly aggression led by Saudi Arabia greatly enhances AQAP’s unprecedented ability to expand support and amass financial and military resources.
