The Arab League called on the parties to the conflict in the southern Yemeni city of Aden to calm down and engage in a responsible dialogue to end the differences and work together to ensure the return of legitimacy to the country, end the suffering of the Yemeni people and preserve the unity of the country.
The source urged "all the people of Yemen to arbitrate reason and put the best interest of the Yemeni state above any narrow considerations in order to preserve the security, safety and unity of the Yemeni territory.
Heavy clashes erupted last Wednesday in the interim capital Aden after the call of the armed separatist Southern Transitional Council to combat alarm and control of the presidential palace in the area of Ma'asheq southeast of the city.
Clashes escalated Thursday and Friday into a street war in which heavy weapons, including tanks, were used between the presidential protection brigades of Yemeni President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi and the UAE-backed separatist Southern Transitional Council .
At least five people have been killed and 10 civilians injured so far.
Clashes subsided last night, amid mediations and calls for calm in the city of Aden, which witnessed almost complete power outage amid a high heat wave as the streets of the city were free from the movement of vehicles and pedestrians.
Yemen has been devastated by a five-year armed conflict between the government backed by the Saudi-led coalition and the Iran-backed Houthis. The conflict erupted after the Houthis ousted the government and seized power in late 2014.
The conflict has triggered what the UN calls the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with most of the population in need for a type of humanitarian aid and immediate protection, including 14 million people risking famine and some 1.8 million children suffering malnutrition.
