Islah forces attack journalists in Shabwah

Gunmen of the Special Forces affiliated with the Islah Party and loyal to the Saudi-led coalition have on Tuesday assaulted three media correspondents in the city of Ataq, the capital of Shabwah province in eastern Yemen.

Activists on social media confirmed that the gunmen attacked journalists Jamal Shniter, Saleh Saeed al-Dawil, and Mohammed Ali Pasha, while they were covering the operations of the Al-Amaliqa Brigades in Ataq city. The troops reportedly confiscated the cameras and media equipment and devices that were in their possession.

This development comes after the overthrow of the province’s governor Muhammad Saleh bin Adio last Saturday, and the appointment of Awadh al-Zeer, a politician who recently returned from consultations in the UAE.
