This comes as the Ansarullah movement control Sana’a, the capital of Yemen, while the mostly internationally recognized Yemeni government are based out of the southern port city of Aden.

The Saudi-backed government in Aden has called the separatist actions as a coup.

Saudi Arabia intervened in Yemen to reinstate their puppets, currently holed up in Aden, to bring them back to power in Sana’a. It remains to be seen how Saudi Arabia will react to the separatist actions that seek to topple the Saudi puppet government.
