Hadramawt, Yemen

Dozens of armed men from the Awamer clans paraded against the Houthis in Hawarem, a desert area in the southern Yemeni province of Hadramawt near the border with Saudi Arabia.
This video shows the tribesmen driving a convoy of pickup trucks and SUVs that carry the Awamer tribal flag in a desert area while brandishing rifles, machineguns and rocket-propelled grenade launchers. The men are then seen forming a circle and chanting, as well as shooting their weapons in the air.
The footage also includes an interview with Saleh al-Ameri, a leader of the Awamer clans, in which he declares his tribe’s solidarity with Gulf countries “against any aggression.”

“The Awamer tribes have gathered today. We met here in Hawarem in order to discuss what is going on in the country in general. We have expressed our willingness to adopt the position of the area’s tribes – the tribes in Hadramawt province – in order to defend the country against any aggression. In fact, the security of our country is related to the security of entire Yemen as well as neighboring countries. We, the people of Gulf countries, are prepared to fulfil our duty in defending our homeland. You have doubtless seen these gatherings that have come from everywhere to declare that they are united against any aggression or sabotage that could target our country. We are prepared to defend our homeland. Peace be upon you.”

“Let the world see. They are bombing unarmed people, who do not have any weapons at all. The world needs to stand with the people who are suffering from injustice. The dignity of people is under attack and women and children are under bombing. The world has to understand that these are war profiteers who need to tried in front of the world. Where is human conscience? They say that people in northern Yemen are our brothers. The war involves the south only. They want to annihilate the people of the south. This is the truth.”

Our men and women are fighting against them. We will resist them with the help of God. We shall not accept this. Children! They have killed our children! They have killed our children! They destroyed our homes! But we shall remain steadfast, God willing. We will resist them.”

Fighters of the Belobeid tribe proudly tout their guns and artillery in the southern Yemeni desert of Shabwah, an Al-Qaeda haven. Just as the Saudi-led coalition began bombing Houthis and loyalists to ousted president Ali Abdullah Saleh, hundreds of fighters from the Belobeid tribe began joining forces in the desert of the southern province to begin organizing a coordinated resistance against the Houthis.

In the past few months, the ongoing expansion of northern Yemen's Houthi rebels has prompted many tribes in the restive south to pull together. One man interviewed says they are fighting against both the Houthis and "terrorism" as such.

“Peace be upon the Prophet Mohamad and his honourable descendants. Today is the day of reunion in this historic area. Return to history, roots and authenticity.
We are gathered to unify the voice of all Belobeid clans. We confirm that that Belobeid are a solid bloc that shall not be broken.
Throughout history, we have preserved the security of our area [UNINTELLIGIBLE] al-Soda. We have preserved our security and safety against any kind of aggression. What is happening in Sanaa is their own conflict, we are not concerned with it in any manner here in the south. We have proved our presence. The security of Belobaid is equivalent to the security of the whole land of the south, from Mahra to Bab al-Mandab [UNINTELLIGIBLE]."
