Taiz- Yemen’s President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi ordered the formation and activation of a security operations room linked with Ministry of Interior based in the temporary capital of Aden.

Yemen national news agency SABA reported that the joint unit aims “to converge information and facilitate decision-making, promoting security in general.”

“The unit will complete enlisting national security employees, and aid in the urgent dispensing of due salaries.”

President Hadi chaired on Sunday a key meeting including top military and security leaders in Aden.

“Victories achieved for our country and our people calls on unifying efforts and ranks for reasons of securing a national future desired by everyone, in the frame of a fair and stable federal home state,” said President Hadi.

He demanded that everyone “assumes their responsibilities in maintaining the security of the interim capital of Aden, and the nation in general,” he added.

The Yemeni president confirmed at the meeting that inbound and outbound flights at the Aden International Airport are functional and fully operative, unlike spreading rumors.

A number of central issues and topics of national interest were addressed at the meeting, and necessary action was outlined.

Field wise, medical and government sources confirmed Monday the death of 12 coup militants killed overnight in clashes as warring parties pushed north along Yemen’s western coast.

The renewed clashes in the coastal towns of Midi and Mokha, north and south of the major Red Sea port of Hodeida respectively, erupted the day after government forces seized control of the area.

Army troops managed to thwart another attack against Yemeni army positions based west of the Jabal Habashy District.

Red Sea port city Mokha witnessed the continued advance of Yemeni army forces clearing the coastline, gathering at the city outskirts of Hodeida, where army units seek to expand control.
