there are reports of several people being killed in fighting between pro-government forces and separatists. this mobile phone footage appears to show people arriving in the city thousands of protesters have been gathering against the internationally recognized and saudi backed government the demonstrators are backed by the united arab emirates which is supposed to be saudi arabia's ally in yemen. not necessarily in that situation. so you have a very important story. you're out there you even are now creating. and you're if you. will we. know that you have it's own you have your own lives. and the more. you're really hungry and i think we didn't want to repeat and based on current situation. the conflict in today's yemen is
8:04 pm
complicated the country used to be divided between north and south yemen until unification in one nine hundred ninety but the difference is never really went away since the fight with the who these began in two thousand and fifteen the secessionists have fought for control over here in seaports of aden last week southern forces led by the man appointed by president of the rebel months who are highly as the governor of aden announced to overthrow hardy's government and that major general rule is to be rejected the deployment of northern forces to the south there have been calls since last sunday so it's been about a week for people to go down to the streets to protest and. south transitional council has been calling on had the head of government to dissolve and for a new government to be appointed and they are calling for independence as well as we've seen on the ground the crashes are continuing and the situation is. very
8:05 pm
quickly now the future of president hadi is in question he has been based in saudi arabia along with this prime minister had been that other who struggled to control southern yemen despite support from saudi arabia. women's elected government was pushed out of the capital sanaa in the north and now it doesn't seem to have a place in the south as well some of the jarvey the others there. well to try to make some sensible lesson joined by our senior political analyst moment i shall here in the us in the studio and as this fractious happen i saw playing into the hostess hands absolutely i mean there's no doubt about that in the sense that this has been going on now for two and a half years and and certainly it's draining and bleeding yemen and the southern part of yemen cannot get back together and clearly the saudis and the immoralities that are sponsoring the war in yemen in some sort some form or another coalition have outsourced much of the fighting within the country and that's leading to some
8:06 pm
major friction among the southerners as we've seen whether it is the president and his prime minister on the one hand of the whole country that is a bit high demand so heidi and and his prime minister and the separatists if you will so all in all you know what the arab coalition is calling for what so many people who care for yemen are calling for you know basically let's wait until this whole thing settled the conflict with the hoses and then we'll figure out what is it to be done in the south and yet the separatists are taking advantage of the fact that there is a war going on with the healthy with the weak link being in the southern part of yemen taking some sort of a sponsorship from abu dhabi in the united arab emirates in order to separate so it's really quite sad you know for yemen as it were when we talk about all these geopolitical at plates moving if it's easy to forget the humanitarian situation
8:07 pm
which is being called the west bank crisis in the world right now when we're looking to an end game which we've done so many times and it seems to me nine cents of it in close sight where where could the precious be put now i mean that's the saudis role in all of this no longer with the u.a.e. or are they still with the u.a.e. head who's coming in to really say they are somehow in to make sense of this. actually this is this is an important question i personally i'm looking carefully into the various signs or signals coming out of saudi arabia and the united arab emirates i can't see that the. opposite sides at this point in time i almost see a complicity because the the statement that came out of the saudis so so did it coalition did not condemn the separatists that attacked violently the institutions of government if you were they basically called for calm they basically said they're going to take into consideration you know popular discontent but we've seen
8:08 pm
that seen before two three two three years ago when the healthy is. went after the standing government and occupied capital sunnah it was under the same pretexts as the separates doing today so really is that you evading the endgame in yemen or saudi arabia it's not clear so the area so directly remains to be a more powerful country but who's taking the lead perhaps the united arab emirates other rights yemenis in the positions of power said move this forward of the prime minister president and the right people is the corruption issue in the south an issue that could make things in the balance instead of forwards of this is always been an issue that. is not the charisma thick strong leader who was always the vice-president of the now late. yemeni president who was basically removed from power i doubt the last. but you know this takes me back and just with in twenty seconds history lesson especially that we have a lot of europeans this into us now this was this is the suppression in yemen and
8:09 pm
the unity in yemen took place exactly the same time that germany united you know one nine hundred ninety is the one germany united the yemeni united's and and everyone who was wondering if the german mother was going to be the yemeni mother meaning basically west germany took over is germany but eventually merkel who is from east germany became the chancellor in yemen we have similar situation the north basically you know took over the south but no opposite will most who had who is a southerner is really the leader of the entire country you know with the exception of the host cities so all in all you would hope that the emmys understand that division and friction within their country whether with the hoses or with the separates will not lead to a bus but the situation in yemen there are no separate solutions for yemen it's like this and i thank you for joining us.
