The Yemeni internationally-recognized President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi has ordered, on phone call, Socotra Governor Ramzi Mahroos to control the situation in the island and guard public and private properties.
Based in the Indian Ocean off African coasts, Socotra island witnessed early on Friday fierce fighting between the Southern Transitional Council (STC) forces and the official government army.
President Hadi appreciated the role played by the southern governorate people and their cooperation with military and security leaders and coalition representatives positioned there to stabilize security, according to the Riyadh-based Saba.
Advisor to Hadi called the Yemeni President and Saudi-led coalition to intervene and stop these battles.
"At 7:30 am, Socotra governor told me that different heavy and medium weapons have been used in ongoing battles in the island," Ahmed Obaid Bin Daghr, also former premier, added on Twitter.
Those "who seized the brigade are trying to take control of Hodaibo, Socotra provincial capital. I hope the President, his deputy, the prime minister and brothers in the Kingdom to intervene and stop these battles, in which the winner is loser."
For his part, Governor Mahroos accused the "people of Dhalea, Abyan and Yafea" of attacking the people of Socotra, noting that he had received presidential instructions entrusting the provincial capital's security to Arab coalition troops.
The STC had vowed to raid Hodaibo and warned the Saudi troops stationed in the archipelago it would take "strict actions" unless they bear their responsibilities and remove "new militarization erections", hinting at the military and security posts established by the government forces at the city's entrances.
