Four prisoners of war were executed on Tuesday by al-Qaeda terrorists and Islah militants in the Saudi-held city of Ma’rib, eastern Yemen.
The Yemeni army soldiers, who had been captured in battle, were killed after being tortured in Islah Party jails in Wadi Abaidah.
The sources confirmed that “Ali bin Hassan bin Gharib, the military leader of the Islah militants in Abaidah areas, in coordinating with the terrorist elements of Al-Qaeda and ISIS organisations, directed his fighters to run over 4 prisoners while they were still alive, using a military armoured vehicle belonging to the coalition.”
Ma’rib city has witnessed numerous executions against prisoners, in clear violation of international humanitarian laws.
The previous such violation was the execution of 3 prisoners inside the prisons of the Saudi-backed military police forces on August 15.
