Hundreds of officers and soldiers protested inside the International Sana'a Airport on Sunday, demanding to sack commander of the Air Forces, Mohammad Saleh Al-Ahmar, half-brother of the outgoing President Ali Abdullah Saleh.
One officer told Yemen Post on condition of anonymity that five tanks and many military vehicles belonging to the Central Security and Special Guard Forces rushed to the airport with the aim of dispersing the protesting soldiers.
"However, Major General Ahmed Ali Al-Ashwal, Chief of General Staff, immediately headed to the airport and ordered the forces not to assault approximately 500 protesters." he added.
He further said that negotiations are being continuing between Al-Ashwal and some officers of the Air Forces, indicating that they insist on the resignation of Al-Ahmar and meet all other demands.
Sources said that Guards of Al-Ahmar arrested an officer, Omar Al-Hatimi, who loudly criticized Al-Ahmar and threw his shoes at him inside a meeting hall of the Air Forces.
Officers and troops of the Air forces Air complained that Al-Ahmar used to confiscate all their rights, and fail to keep his promises for which he pledged to grant them promotion and allowances.
Sources told Yemen Post that the soldiers were preparing to escalate their protests against Al-Ahmar in case all their demands are not met.
The revolution of institutions have hit many public authorities and resulted in the ouster of tens of corrupt officials in Yemen, as employees insisted on firing corrupt officials.
Among those high-ranking officials who lost their positions were Major General Ali Hassan Al-Shater, chief of the Armed Forces Moral Guidance Department and Abdul Khaleq al-Qadhi, chairman of Yemenia airlines.
