Saudi occupation forces on Sunday closed Aden International Airport and diverted all civil flights in force to Seiyon Airport, sources said.

The sources affirmed that the local authorities in Aden city, which are loyal to the exiled Hadi’s government or UAE-backed the southern transition council, have become unaware of what Saudi forces are doing in Aden.

According to observers, the Saudi forces followed the UAE steps in creating new militias to take militarily and economically over Aden, Shabwa and Mahrah.
