After landing in the provisional capital, Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi went straight to the palace to “supervise” the offensive aimed at retaking Taez province, mostly-controlled by the rebels, a presidential source said. In September, after six months of exile in Saudi Arabia, Hadi and Bahah returned to Aden but had to go back to Riyadh after a deadly attack on the provisional seat of government.
