Last week, Yemeni Prime Minster Khaled Bahah and several Cabinet members from the internationally recognized government arrived in Aden and announced they were restarting government operations in the country.
A government source said Hadi would spend the Muslim Eid al-Adha holiday in the city then fly to New York to deliver a speech at the United Nations.
“The return of his excellency the president to Aden comes after an absence that has lasted for six months amid the brutal aggression which has been carried out by the militias loyal to the Houthis and Saleh on the city of Aden”, the Associated Press quoted a statement by Mr Hadi’s office as saying. However, their offensive is reported to have stalled in Marib province, east of the capital, in recent days.
The rebels still control much of northern and central Yemen.
Coalition planes launched dozens of strikes Tuesday aiming at Houthi positions, focusing on the provinces of Taiz and Marib. Later, they will take part in the battle to retake the capital Sanaa from the militants.
Asiri said the Houthis were responsible for the soldiers’ lives and called on the rebels to respect the Geneva Convention.
Loyalists have also been locked in fierce fighting for control of third city Taez, which is also seen as a crucial gateway to Sanaa.
The fighting in Yemen has killed more than 4,500 people and caused what the United Nations and aid workers describe as a humanitarian disaster in the Arabian Peninsula country of 25 million people.
In response to the Royal Orders of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said, Oman government in coordination with the Yemeni authorities in Sanaa, managed to release two US Citizens, three Saudi citizens and a British citizen.
The death toll was likely to rise because some people were missing, another medical source said, as rescuers combed the rubble.
Scott Darden, 45 – who has a 10-year-old son – was to be reunited with his wife in Oman on Monday, company spokesperson Ken Luce told AFP.
Washington has provided intelligence and logistical support for the Saudi-led campaign, while calling for a political solution to the conflict.
Al-Qaida said in June that its leader in Yemen, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, had been killed by a USA drone.
