Separatists and Government Forces Clash in Yemen

Pro-government forces and separatists in southern Yemen exchanged artillery fire, Sunday, November 29, killing at least 13 fighters.

The Southern Transitional Council is attempting to secede southern Yemen from the rest of the country, while also allying with the central government in the fight against the Iran-backed Houthi rebels.

The separatists announced their withdrawal from talks on a power-sharing deal with the internationally recognized government in August.

Tens of thousands of people have been killed and millions displaced in Yemen’s civil war, which has been labeled by the United Nations as the world’s worst humanitarian disaster. (AFP)
