SANA’A – Yemeni police forces have arrested two mercenaries of the Saudi invasion force who had deserted and were trying to flee back to southern Yemen while dressed as women.
The two mercenaries, presumably coming from the south of Yemen, were trying to flee to Aden when they were apprehended by Yemeni security forces in Lahj province. They had run from battle following the fierce confrontations in Bayda, which resulted in a major victory for the Yemeni Armed Forces and the death of Saudi-backed mercenary Colonel Ahmed al-Aqeli, who commanded the 153th Brigade of mercenaries.
Reports have it that thousands of recruits from the South Yemen Movement that joined the Saudi invasion, are currently attempting to flee back to the south in disguise. Although they obviously fear arrest and punishment by Yemeni security forces, the most important reason for their disguises is a fear of identification and imprisonment by the Saudi coalition forces, which would most likely see them end up in the infamous UAE-operated illegal prison camps.
