Militant Leader in Yemen Capital for Talks on Battles, Release of Europeans

 Yemen Post Staff

Leader of Al-Qaeda militants in the Rada city, Baidha, sheikh Abdul Ra'ouf Al-Dhahab arrived on Saturday in Yemen's capital Sanaa to hold talks with senior officials on how to put an end to the battles between the army and the militants, Alahale reported quoting local sources.
Other reports said Al-Dhahab, who arrived with commander of the current military campaign to fight the militants in the Qaifa area in Rada, will meet President Abdrabu Mansour Hadi, but such reports have not been confirmed.
Few weeks ago, the army dispatched forces and equipment to drive the militants out of Rada and release three Europeans who were kidnapped in Sanaa in December and handed to Al-Qaeda in Baidha.
The forces fought the militants for few days and amid that a tribal mediation succeeded in reaching a ceasefire.
In the meantime, the tribal mediation has also succeeded to convince the militants, mainly those who don't belong to Rada including foreigners, to leave the city, according to the website.
Under the mediation, the tribe of Al Al-Dhahab, will stay as the elders or sheiks in the Qaifa area.
The current leader of the militants is the brother of the former leader who was killed by his brother after the last year's battles with the army.
In December, unknown kidnappers snatched two Finns and an Austrian and they were said to have sold the three to Al-Qaeda in Baidha.
The army decided to launch the campaign to release the three and retake control of areas seized by the militants amid an ongoing campaign against Al-Qaeda militants across the republic, mainly in Abyan.
Last year, the army launched a US-backed offensive, drove all militants out of their strongholds in Abyan and Shabwa and retook control of all areas in the two southern provinces.
