UAE-Backed Militia Threatens to Blow Up Aden Airport

ADEN: A member of the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) Militia on Monday threatened to blow up the passenger terminal at Aden International Airport.

In a letter, Abdulraqib al-Omari, the director of Aden airport, which is under coalition control confirmed that a member of the airport guard battalion affiliated with STC stormed the passenger terminal and threatened to detonate a bomb he was carrying in his hand, without giving reasons.

Abdulraqib al-Omari submitted to the Hadi Government’s Aviation Authority that the “STC” battalion has not complied with regulations and laws, leading to a disaster that threatens to withdraw international flight reception permits by ICAO Aviation.

Air navigation experts expressed strong opinion that the incident would be recorded in the International Air Transport Association (IATA)and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), as an incident that threatened the security of flights and could lead to the withdrawal of Aden Airport’s licence to receive international flights.
