At least one killed in clashes between mercenary forces in Aden

At least one killed and four others wounded on Saturday due to armed clashes erupted between gunmen affiliated with militias loyal to Saudi-led coalition, in the port city of Aden, southern Yemen.

The clashes that broke out in a popular market in Sheikh Othman left one dead and four wounded, according to local sources.

A verbal altercation began between the gunmen over a “qat bundle” and then developed to an exchange of fire, one of the sources explained.

The clashes caused panic among citizens and market goers who jumped to escape the bullets that were fired by gunmen of both sides inside the market indiscriminately.

The city of Aden has been witnessing a state of insecurity and overwhelming chaos, amid growing crimes of assassination and kidnapping in the city.
