Yemeni civilian tortured to death by UAE-backed mercenaries

A civilian has been tortured to death by a faction of the pro-UAE Southern Transitional Council (STC) in a camp in the southern port city of Aden, Yemen News Portal reported, citing local sources.

According to local sources, the young man, named Mohammed Abdul Wahab al-Sabry, from Sabir Al Mawadim district in Taiz province, had a serious quarrel with a chicken vendor from Yafea district, prompting the latter to call the Security Belt mercenary faction in the 8th Brigade.

The UAE-backed militias subsequently tortured Al-Sabry inside their camp and then brutally hanged him to cover up the crime, before handing over his body to his family, one of the sources said.

The militias of the Security Belt are known for their regionalist and racist practices as well as their crimes of forced displacement and abuse against citizens coming from the northern provinces, in addition to looting and random killings.
