Mercenary official assassinated by unknown gunmen in Mocha

Unidentified gunmen have assassinated a military official in the mercenary forces funded by the UAE in the coastal city of Mocha in Taiz province, southwest Yemen, local sources reported on Saturday.

The sources said that unidentified gunmen shot a military supply official called Abd Rabbo Mutahar, and killed him immediately.

 

The gunmen looted the car in which Mutahar was traveling, and then fled, the sources added.

Mutahar was originally kidnapped by the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC)’s militia mere days before his assassination, with his car and personal phone being taken, and only his car given back to him when he was later on released.
