Three UAE-backed separatists killed in attack in Abyan

At least three recruits of the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) were killed and three others wounded on Tuesday in an ambush targeted them in Abyan province, southern Yemen.

Local sources stated that unidentified gunmen targeted a military vehicle of the so-called “security belt” in Ahwar area, which is under the control of Islah Party militants and the STC, killing three recruits and injuring three others.

This comes after the Islah militants took control of areas near the points of the “111th Brigade” loyal to the STC in mid-May, with the justification of securing the road.
