A southern Yemeni separatist leader, Hani ibn Breik, has declared his movement's support for LNA commander Gen. Khalifa Haftar's assault on the Libyan capital.
Hani, the Vice President of the Southern Transitional Council (STC) which seized Aden on Saturday following clashes with forces loyal to the internationally-recognised government, claimed the separatists were ready to share their "expertise & experience" with the LNA. He also stated that the STC & LNA share a common enemy in "terrorist militias" backed by Qatar & Turkey. The United Arab Emirates, backers of the STC in the Yemen conflict, have also been listed amongst the backers of General Haftar & the LNA in Libya, with Qatar & Turkey counted publicly as supporters of the GNA.
With the current situation in Yemen it seems highly unlikely that the STC by itself would be capable of providing any significant support to the LNA; the more relevant issue is how UAE support for the separatists has caused an outcry from Saudi Arabia, allies of both the UAE & Haftar, and what this will mean going forward for all involved.
