Today, Wednesday, the President of the Southern Transitional Council, Aidarous Al-Zubaidi, directed the military forces of the Council to prepare for what he called “the liberation of the remaining lands of the south.”
This came during a speech on the occasion of the anniversary of the October 14 revolution, during which Al-Zubaidi urged all citizens of the southern Yemeni governorates to move on the path of secession, return to before 94, and support the military forces of the Council in that.
Al-Zubaidi stressed that the Southern Transitional Council is the component authorized to carry the southern issue in the negotiations of the comprehensive political process.
He also stressed the pursuit of secession and “restoring and building the state of the south,” adding, “It is a covenant we made, and we will not back down or falter.”
He added, “Today we are living in the throes of a liberation revolution to restore and build the independent state of the south, which derives the spirit of struggle and resistance from the determination of the October 14 revolutionaries.”
Al-Zubaidi described the rule of the Republic of Yemen during the past decades as “the occupation of the south on July 7, 1994 AD by force of arms and placing it under a destructive military occupation of the south, land and people, usurped sovereignty, looted wealth, and an identity to be obliterated.”
