Yemen government has banned any protests in Aden ahead of a deadline given by separatists. The separatists gave a deadline to dissolve the cabinet to President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
The warnings issued by the separatists come over allegations of corruption and mismanagement. They say they plan to oust the government if the President does not dismiss the cabinet in a week.
Following such warnings, the government has taken appropriate measures and has consequently forbidden any public gathering, sit ins, or marches in the city of Aden.
The state run Saba news agency said in its official statement, “These actions will be considered acts that target stability and calm.”
Forces have been deployed on roads leading to the presidential palace in the Maasheeq area, where the government is based. Furthermore no armed groups will be allowed entry into the interim capital.
Southern forces have clashed previously as well with Hadi supporters, including members of the Islamist Islah party. The clashes had been over control of strategic areas, such as Aden airport and oil facilities. The Southern Transitional Council was formed last year and pushes for a split between the former South Yemen and North Yemen.
