Al-Qaeda elements have taken control over the al-Wadhe’a district of Abyan province, which is the Saudi-backed exiled former president Hadi’s hometown, according to sources on Sunday.

The sources said that the al-Qaeda elements spread in the district after the arrival of dozens of militants from Ma’rib to Abyan.

The recent clashes in the southern provinces have showed that elements of the Daesh and Al-Qaeda terrorist organisations are fighting alongside Hadi’s forces against the UAE-backed so-called Southern Transitional sitional Council’s militias
