Couple weeks ago, Aden, de facto "capital" of the Saudi/UAE-controlled part of Yemen was overrun by UAE-backed forces, who seek to make Southern Yemen a separate country again:

On August 28th, it was reported that pro-Saudi Yemen government forces had taken back the city:

But the day after, on 29th, the separatists apparently rolled them back out of there again:

The pro-Saudi Yemen President Hadi is demanding Saudi Arabia intervene against the AUE: Hadi urges Saudi intervention to stop UAE support for separatists

Meanwhile, a suicide bomber, apparently from ISIS, also attacked the pro-UAE forces in Aden: Suicide bomber kills separatist fighters in Yemen's Aden: witnesses - Reuters

While the Iran-backed Shia Houthis these morons are supposed to be battling together must be sitting back, relaxing, and laughing their asses off... lol

Welcome to Yemen...
