Shabwa, NewsYemen, private:

The Brotherhood was in great shock, after putting down its militia's rebellion against the decisions of the Presidential Leadership Council and the legitimate authority in Shabwa Governorate, southeast of Yemen, while the group's leaders and members fell into a state of confusion.

Meanwhile, the Brotherhood's Islah party resorted to threats and insinuations of using violence in retaliation against the legitimate authority, Shabwa and its governor, Awad bin al-Wazir, and its security and military forces represented by the Giants Brigades and the Shabwa Defense.

The Brotherhood is still under the impact of the shock that put them in a predicament, as they tried to test the pulse of the Presidential Council, confuse it and weaken its position, but they were surprised by the position shown by the Council in support of the Governor of Shabwa in the face of the rebellion carried out by security and military leaders loyal to the organization.

On the other hand, Islah party activists escalated the media campaign against the President of the Presidential Leadership Council, Dr. Rashad Al-Alimi, which went beyond accusations of "dependency and employment" to insulting and defaming him with immoral terms and phrases.

And in view of the ongoing transformation in Shabwa governorate, the situation may turn to escalate further, especially with the Brotherhood’s tendency to arrange for upcoming battles and chaos in other areas, including Hadramawt and Al-Mahra governorates.

In parallel, Brotherhood leaders and their media invoked the "Bogeyman of the Emirates" to cover up their armed rebellion against the Presidential Leadership Council, where Brotherhood journalist Ahmed Al-Shalafi claimed that Emirati officers supervise the security and military committee formed for the task of reforming the armed forces.

Confusion accompanying the conditions that activists in the Islah party have reached, naturally increased. Mukhtar al-Rahbi, who runs a Brotherhood channel funded by Oman and Qatar and broadcasts from Turkey, tried to reduce the legitimacy of the Presidential Council.  According to his claim, "nothing was left of him except Aidarous Al-Zubaidi and Rashad Al-Alimi."

 Putting down the rebellion..a painful blow

Political activist Muhammad Ali Amer says that the Brotherhood's Islah Party's fear of losing the privilege of absolute control over legitimacy and its resources, which it enjoyed during the period of former President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi, is behind the confusion and escalation that followed the killing of the rebellion of his forces in Shabwa.

Amer said, "The tendency of the Islah party with all its leaders and elements to attack the Presidential Leadership Council and accuse it of "treason" is a reflection of what they wanted for the role of the Presidential Council to be marginal in front of their control over the decision.

In turn, Radwan Abdel Salam, a "youth activist", believes that the Brotherhood's problem when there is real change aimed at reforming the structure of legitimacy, where their difficult situation and factors of weakness emerge, and therefore they tend to maintain the bad situation they created as it is, or engage in a larger sabotage act as they do not  They want to prejudice their interests that serve the Houthi group.

Abdul Salam said: "The Islah Party has a reality of control and bad experiences that made Yemenis yearn to end its tampering with legitimacy, because the Brotherhood has caused all the disasters that pushed the country into this vast chaos."


 For his part, Abdel Nasser Al-Adeeb (academic) explained that the problem of the Brotherhood’s Islah Party was that it was never part of the national project, which stood before the Houthis as much as its plans were to be able to rule the provinces that are not badly subject to the Houthis, humiliate them and loot their wealth for the benefit of the organization.

He believed that "this rebellion was reflected in the reality of the Islah party, which is evidence of their lack of seriousness in changing, and their attempts to keep their forces and the money they looted from the rich provinces in order to continue to obstruct any real political project and disrupt the institutional and military reality, until they complete the time needed to bring about a broader coup against all parties."  forces and parties.
