Two people were killed Monday in Aden by the UAE-backed separatist Southern Transitional Council (STC) Security Belt forces in their ongoing pursuit to arrest the official government loyalists.

Security Belt forces raided the house of Mohamed Ali Saeed al-Maysari, manager of Boraiqa district's public relations, and took him to unknown direction, said local sources.

While abducting al-Maysari, the Emirati-backed forces opened fire at the house, killing one of his family members, the sources added.

The SB "forces also stormed into the house of Ali Saeed Obaish, a resident of Aden port city, and shot dead his 10-year-old son, Jalal," according to the sources.

STC forces have tightened grip on Aden, deploying more armed men and patrols to intensify inspection after their Thursday re-seizure of the city following violent fighting, backed by UAE warplanes, against troops of the Yemeni internationally-recognized government.

On Sunday, the Yemeni official government accused the separatist STC of executing theprisoners and injured at hospitals, killing people by identity, storming into and stealing or burning houses, and committing abductions and arrests.

"These war crimes, which can't be acquitted by time, portend an awful humanitarian catastrophe," said official minister of information.

"These terrorist crimes and heinous violations, documented by footages, indicate deep hatred and uncover the STC militias' real face and the devastating project they bear for people in southern provinces," Moammar al-Eryani added on Twitter.

The Yemeni government will pursue all those responsible for such crimes at national and international courts, he vowed.

Saudi Arabia and the UAE have 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 (Ansarullah) 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.
