The recent important changes in the country by the Houthis after they claimed to make a coup in the country and besieging the government buildings in Sanaa; pushed the anti-Houthis and anti-government movements and armed groups to take their own decisions in order to be able put limits for the Houthis advances toward Southern Yemen and Ma’rib Province.

AQAP cooperating with many Sunni tribes in the battles against Houthis in al-Baydaa Province (mainly in and around Radaa’ City). No declared alliance between the Yemen Southern Movement and AQAP or confirmed cooperation in the ongoing battles, at the same time, some activists said that AQAP were pushed out from many populated areas and they accepted this action since their main goals currently is to fight the Houthis and the Regime.
