Southern Military Commander Magwalah ousted, General Gatan is replacement, whats buzzing is Maqwalah refused Hadi’s orders, then handed the equipment over to al Qaeda, thus the tragic losses today among the Yemeni military outside Zinjibar, upwards of 50 soldiers killed. Al Qaeda brought the “captured” military hardware to Jaar where the locals are under occupation by al Qaeda, and there are no refugee camps for the people to go to even if they could flee without being literally crucified by the fanatics. The 100,000 who fled Zinjibar are still living in misery in schools in Aden without much support, still a better life than under AQAP control Also this school year in Aden is wrecked by AQAP as a result of the mass migration away from areas of their control.
