 Member of the Presidency of the Southern Transitional Council, Lutfi Shattara, responded to a provocative question from a pro-legitimacy tribal sheikh to the Southerners.

The Northern tribal sheikh, Abdullah al-Okimi claimed in his tweet that the UAE (an active partner within the Arab Coalition) has occupied the southern ports and islands and built prisons and detention centers in the southern liberated regions and even formed armed militias there with a view to turning the Southerners to low rank dependents not partners. The claims of al-Okimi go well with the slogans raised and circulated by the Islah Party, the Muslim Brotherhood's arm in Yemen and media outlets of Qatar.

Shatara said that the one who listens to al-Okimi's words would think that the South was living in paradise under the occupation in the name of unity, telling him "Before talking about the South, you have to be ashamed of yourselves and of your inability to liberate your own land (the North)."

"I swear that I feel sorry for the South mania that got a hold on you and made you blind to see the North " Shatara added, concluding his tweet by saying to the northern tribal sheikh "First and foremost, liberate your own country and stop running away from your reality."
