Yemen civil war:  Is Daesh taking over territory ceded by Al Qaeda?

Yemen

Jaafar Mohammed Saad died alongside several aides when his vehicle was attacked by members of the terror group, also known as Daesh. The evil group did not admit responsibility for the deadly blast immediately but it has established a presence in Yemen since the country’s civil war broke out earlier this year. ISIS later posted a statement on a messaging service revealing it had detonated a car laden with explosives as Saad’s vehicle passed through Aden’s Tawahi district, as part of a convoy, as he made his way to work.  Local residents and an official described how the suicide bomber rammed his car into the governor’s vehicle. Saad played a significant role in driving government-opposing rebels out of Aden and was heavily involved in trying to re-establish the port city as a secure base for the Government. Yemen’s civil war has been raging for eight months and and United Nations is hoping to organise talks later this month between the government, lead by President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi, and Iranian-backed Houthi rebels, who support former President Ali Abdullah Saleh. Saad’s death is likely to seriously hinder the UN’s attempt to restore peace to the country. The assassinated governor was believed to be close to President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi. His death will be a blow to the Arab coalition’s efforts to secure the city after it fell two months ago.

Government efforts to reassert control over the city have been hit. It could also slow down humanitarian work undertaken by the UAE in the area. Roads and health facilities are being built, and government and coalition troops have to throw in reinforcements to ensure more attacks do not occur during the next phase of the campaign. Dr Anwar Mohammed Gargash, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, said the ‘treacherous’ deed would not go unpunished. He said operations against the militants would continue. The offensive is likely to diversify against the new enemy, Daesh, which is swiftly taking over territory ceded by Al Qaeda. “These crimes will not discourage our common resolve to restore security and stability throughout the brotherly nation of Yemen,” said Dr Gargash. The Houthi terrorists, meanwhile, are dragging their feet over talks. They see themselves in a better position to bargain for the spoils of war as the coalition trains guns on the city of Taiz and troops have their eyes set on Sanaa, the capital. Aden has to be secured to free up coalition troops in their push for Sanaa in the north. Gulf and Arab coalition efforts should speed up training for the Yemeni police, a task led by the UAE. Daesh should not be allowed to sneak in. The war is now being fought on two fronts against different enemies – and it\’s getting increasingly complex.
