Ministry Says New Commander Takes over Third Brigade in Yemen

The Defense Ministry on Monday said Abdul Rahman Al-Halily started his post as the new commander of the third republican guard brigade in the capital Sanaa after two months of the rebellion of the former commander against a presidential decree replacing him.
The ministry said the Military Committee visited the brigade under presidential orders and the new commander has already started his job.
The takeover of this brigade came a day before the UN Security Council meets to issue a resolution, which might include sanctions against the obstructers of the democratic transition in Yemen.
The UN earlier said it would send a strongly-worded letter to the Yemeni officials behind attempts to affect the power-transfer deal, which was brokered by the GCC and backed by the West after the 2011 unrest, hinting at sanctions.
President Abdrabu Mansour Hadi on April 6 issued the decree replacing the former commander, Tariq Saleh, a nephew of the ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh, but Saleh, who already accepted to give up the post, but continued to maneuver until officers in the brigade revolted against the acting commander.
Relatives of the ex-leader, holding senior army posts, backed the rebellion of the commander.
On Sunday, officers in the brigade revolted against the acting commander, who was appointed by the elder son of the ex-leader, Ahmed, the commander of the republican guard, and forced him to leave the brigade.
