Al-Mahrah, Demonstrators resume continue their protests against presence of Saudi troops at Al-Saqr border outlet


Groups of residents of The Hoof district in al-Mahra province in eastern Yemen resumed their sit-in in front of Al-Saqer border crossing with Oman in protest against the Saudi military presence at the port.

A source from the protesters told "Al-Masdar Online" that the protesters closed the gate for goods and soldiers in the Port of Sarveet demanding the departure of Saudi forces.

He pointed out that the resumption of the sit-in came after the failure of mediation of the sheikhs in the area tried to intervene to calm the situation, and residents say that the presence of Saudi forces in the area causes them harassment, the most recent of which, according to the protesters, the attack on customs officials of the Sarveet port by Saudi soldiers weeks ago.

He said the Hoof tribes stopped Saudi military reinforcements aimed at strengthening the force at the port.

The residents of the Hoof district of Al-Mahra governorate carried out a sit-in at the end of last year 2018 and late May 2019, which was lifted in response to mediation.

Al-Mahra province, which borders Oman, has been the scene of moves since last year against the Saudi military presence in the province, which has been plagued by limited clashes between the two sides since last year.
