 The acting President of the Southern Transitional Council (STC), President of the National Assembly, Major General Ahmed Said Ben Brik said in a brief statement "Now is the time of no return.."

Ben Brik's statement was made against the backdrop of the renewed armed clashes that had been erupted in Abyan governorate on Tuesday night, between the militias of Islah party, the military wing of Muslim Brotherhood organization within Yemen's legitimacy and the southern armed forces.

Earlier, Ben Brik urged, on his official Twitter account, the southern field commanders in Abyan to implement “Plan B” to deal with he Brotherhood's militias.

Military field sources said that the Brotherhood's militias launched on Monday desperate attacks on the locations under the control of the southern forces in the areas of Sala, al-Toriya and the coastal areas near Shuqra.

The Brotherhood's militias continue to breach Abyan ceasefire and to bring more terrorist fighters of Al Qaeda and Daesh from Yemen's Marib governorate to the province, the same sources added.

Observers confirmed that the violations of Abyan ceasefire and the continued escalation of the Brotherhood's militias in the province is a flagrant defiance of all the efforts to accelerate the implementation of the Riyadh Agreement.
