A Yemeni diplomat said on Friday that UAE's risk exceeded that of Iran at his country.

Yemen's internationally-recognized ambassador to Jordan, Ali Al-Amrani, said in two tweets on Twitter: "No one expected this even in the worst nightmares.", pointed to that all Yemenis realize that even those whom the UAE has tied to their personal interests to buy their silence or loyalty.

"We are deeply sorry when we talk about siblings, but it is the truth of infertility.", he added.

Amrani asked: "Can the UAE revise its agenda in Yemen quickly and urgently, for its own benefit and for the benefit of Yemen and the Arab coalition?",

“This is what we had hoped for and talked about before, but unfortunately it seems to have preceded the sword,” he said.

The Yemen's internationally recognized government forces accused on Friday the leadership of the UAE forces in Balhaf of

flaring up the military situation and attempting to storm the city of Ataq.

On August 10, the Emirati-backed separatist STC's forces seized full control over the Yemeni southern port city of Aden, seat of the official government, following violent clashes with official army that left 40 people killed and 260 others injured, according to UN release seizure of Aden.

The Yemeni legitimate government dismissed the STC seizure as another coup in Aden, following the Houthi coup in Sana'a, holding the UAE and STC responsible for ramifications.

Saudi Arabia along with the UAE has been leading a military coalition in Yemen since 26 March 2015, in support of forces loyal to President Hadi to retake areas controlled by Houthi (Ansar Allah) group seen as proxy for Iran in the Arab Peninsula country.

Southern separatists have exploited Yemen's war to enhance their presence in the south, backed by the UAE that helped the STC establishment in May 2017 to consist of bodies calling for separation, but also trained and armed local forces under STC command.

STC militarily controls large swathes of Aden, and it led in January 2018 a failed coup against the Yemeni legitimate government.
