YEMEN SACKS SALEH’S MILITARY CRONIES

Muslim World

President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi has restructured Yemen’s military to curb the influence of those linked to toppled strongman Abdullah Ali Saleh. In a series of decisions announced on 19 December, Hadi scrapped the elite Republican Guard commanded by Saleh’s oldest son Ahmed and removed Saleh’s nephew, Yehya, from his powerful post as deputy chief of central security.

Hadi took over the reins of power in Yemen less than a year ago, after veteran strongman Saleh stepped down under a power transition agreement mediated by the Gulf Cooperation Council, following a year-long uprising against his rule. With the restructuring of the military and elimination of the powerful Republican Guard, Yemen’s army now consists of three main branches: ground forces, navy and the air force.
