UAE-backed separatists claim to know culprit behind car comb attack on governor and minister

The UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) has revealed who they claimed was the culprit behind an attack that targeted senior leaders with a car bomb in the city of Aden on Sunday.

A spokesman for the STC militia, Mohammad al-Naqeeb, said on Twitter that ”Five months ago, prominent leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood brought internationally wanted terrorist elements to the city of Aden through the port of Qena in Shabwah province.”

Al-Naqeeb added that “among those terrorist leaders were Miloud Saleh Al-Tunisi, nicknamed Abu Ahmed al-Tunisi, and Saif Al-Irshad al-Afghani,” noting that “they were brought to Aden using the methods of camouflage by women’s clothing.”

The STC militia imposed a military cordon around the site of the explosion that targeted Governor Ahmed Lamlas and the Minister of Agriculture in the Hadi government with a car bomb near the intersection of Hajeef Tour in the Tawahi area, which left several dead and wounded.

In search of those involved in the explosion, the STC militia launched a campaign of arbitrary arrests, targeting dozens of citizens in the area.
