Ministers and other government officials return a day after Houthi rebels were forced out of the port city.
The top rank officials of the exiled Yemeni government have arrived in Aden for the first time since the capture of the southern Yemeni city.
The members of the exiled government officials entered Yemen in a helicopter from neighboring Saudi Arabia.
“President Mansour Hadi delegated the group to return to Aden to aid in the security situation and ensure stability ahead of a revival of the institutions of state in Aden,” stated by one of the officials.
A day before their arrival, Hadi-backed southern militiamen took over the main seaport after intense fighting with the rebels for about two days.
Exiled President Hadi was said to be supervising the recent battlefront against the Houthis, dubbed as “Operation Golden Arrow”.
On Tuesday, Yemeni forces recaptured Aden’s international airport from Houthi rebels as retaliation to the earlier existent clash between the two opposing armies. The Yemeni fighters were backed by Saudi-led coalition air strikes.
Recently, President Barack Obama and Saudi King Salman bin Abdul Aziz discussed the conflict over a telephone conversation.
According to United Nations, at least 142 civilians were killed since July 3 and hundreds injured.
More than 3,200 people have been killed since March 15, 2015. It is believed that another million have been displaced since the conflict broke between the Houthi rebels and the state government officials.
About 80% of the Yemeni population need some kind of humanitarian aid i.e. food or water. It is reported that more than 35% of the Yemenis are suffering from water scarcity.
Moreover, the influx of Yemeni refugees to the neighboring countries like Djibouti, Somalia, is also on the rise. This issue needs to be addressed as soon as possible.
