Atleast for the past couple months, the protests in Yemen seem to have been in a stalemate, along with the clashes with Islamic militants in the
south. The capture of this base I believe signals a pretty big turn in the events in Yemen. The protesters, atleast according to the article, didnt
even have to use firearms to capture the base from the "elite" republican guard.
Imagine the spirits of the protesters after the last of the guards fled from the base.
