Southern Resistance Brigades (SRB)

The Southern Resistance Brigades (SRB) is a Yemeni separatist group that has claimed responsibility for attacks on military sites in the southern province of Ad Dali', during February 2014. The previously unknown group’s objective is an independent South Yemen and targets Yemen military sites and officials. The SRB’s areas of operation are restricted to Southern Yemen. Yemen security officials’ reference to the group as a brigade of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) remains unverified. Al Qaeda in Yemen is now the group at the top of the world's list of most dangerous terrorist organisations. All eyes have turned to this 'little known' Arab country, asking: who is fighting Al Qaeda in Yemen? Yet in their attacks on Al Qaeda, Yemen authorities risk triggering a war with local tribes, who are becoming more and more sympathetic with Al Qaeda. Deploying international troops would further inflame hostility among these tribes. So for now it's Yemen's…

Southern Resistance Brigades (SRB) is an active group formed c. 2014.

Groups and individuals included in TRAC's database range from actual perpetrators of social or political violence to more passive groups that support or condone (perhaps unwittingly) such violence. The spectrum of violence represented by these groups is vast, from Jihadists who bomb train stations to financial institutions that transfer funds. Some groups that originally engaged in violence but have since become legitimate political parties are included to provide historical perspective. TRAC is in no way attempting to determine whether groups or individuals are terrorists -- only to convey reported information about their activities and official State status. While TRAC attempts to ensure the accuracy of its TRAC database, the entries in the database are from numerous different sources. Hence, TRAC cannot and does not warrant the accuracy of the entries in its database. The editors of TRAC may modify these entries at any time and welcome comments and suggested corrections or additions.  Please write [email protected] or hit the "SUBMIT ADDITIONS" button on the page of the group profile about which you wish to comment.
