UAE, S. Arabia Intensify Power Struggle in Southern Yemen

Conflicts between Riyadh and Abu Dhabi will intensify in the next few weeks as the UAE is determined to speed up implementation of its strategy to take control of Southern Yemen with all its islands and ports, media reports said on Saturday. Yemen's state-run news agency reported that Saudi Arabia and the UAE are each trying win a larger share in Yemen and kick the other outside its zone, although the two are partners in the coalition. While Riyadh is seeking to establish control over Northern Yemen to Sana'a, Abu Dhabi supports the militants supported by the coalition in the Southern provinces. Abu Dhabi has also accused Saudi Arabia of shooting down its aircraft in 2016 and Riyadh claims that Abu Dhabi attacks the Saudi fighter jets in Yemen's Southern regions. The UAE is attacking the government of fugitive president Mansour Hadi which is supported by Saudi Arabia and wants to empower Ahmed Ali Saleh, the son of the former Yemeni president. Most analysts and observers believe that conflicts between Riyadh and Abu Dhabi will intensify in the next few weeks, the Yemeni news agency underlined.
