At least two killed during mercenary infighting in Aden

At least two people were killed and four others were wounded in clashes between factions in the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) in the Yemen’s southern port city of Aden.

This was reported by Yemen News Portal, based on the testimony of local sources.

According to the sources, a military pickup vehicle belonging to Nasr Atef, the commander of the 1st Support Brigade, and other emergency forces led by Mohammed al-Khaili have taken control over a piece of land in the area of Bir Fadl, and started firing indiscriminately other troops.

The subsequent clashes reportedly killed two gunmen and injured four others who were taken to al-Wali Hospital.

The sources noted that the warring parties mean to loot the land that the two sides are fighting over.
