Abd Rabu Mansour Hady. The Yemeni president, replaced the titles of the first and second Southern Giants’ Brigades with other titles. Sources indicated that Hady’s directives changed the title of the first Giants’ brigade, under commandership of brigadier Raid Al-Habhi, to “The Sixth Infantry Brigade” while the second Giants’ Brigade, under commandership of brigadier Hamdi Shokri, was renamed to “The Seventh Infantry Brigade”. These changes came as a condition for enlisting these brigades, working in the west coast front, into the so-called National Army.
It is noteworthy that the Third Giants’ Brigade, under commandership of Abd Al-Rahman Al-Lahji, was renamed since mid-December into “The Fourth Infantry Brigade”.
Since its formation with support of UAE, Hady’s authorities and his government didn’t recognize the Southern Giants Brigades. The Giants Brigades recorded major victories over Al-Houthi militias in the west coast while the Muslim Brotherhood Army in Mareb failed to achieve one single victory. This uncovered the ugly face of the national army commanders and their resilience in facing these militias.
