عدن نيوز – AdenNews :

A source in the local authority warned of keeping Socotra Island out of the control of legitimate government and enabling the Emirates to take full control of it.

The source pointed out that the UAE is intensifying its operations and projects on the island since the STC control over the island . He pointed out that three camps have established on the island’s outskirts.

According to the source, the transitional militia, at the airport and port of Socotra, is preparing to receive equipment and weapons coming from the Emirates.

The Emirates Royal Jet company had resumed its flights to the Socotra Archipelago last week without coordination with the government authorities.

The transitional elements are leading a series of kidnappings and storming of government institutions on the island since last June.

The governor of Socotra, Ramzi Mahrous, accused the transitional council of destroying state institutions in the governorate and excluding government leaders.
