At least three mercenaries injured in Aden attack

At least three members of the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC)’s militias were injured on Wednesday, when gunmen attacked their police vehicle in Yemen’s southern port city of Aden.

This was reported by Yemen News Portal, based on testimonies of security sources.

According to the sources, the nmen, whom they described as “outlaws”, attacked a group belonging to the security faction that runs Dar Saad directorate while it was tracking down explosives, which resulted in the injury of three soldiers and destruction of their vehicle.

The source claimed that the security forces have arrested perpetrators and referred them to prosecution.

Dar Saad district has been witnessing conflicts between various factions. The border directorate between Lahj and Aden recently witnessed clashes and mutual attacks between the Security Belt forces and the faction of security director Musleh al-Tharhani.

Al-Tharhani forces also recently clashed with the so-called Al-Amaliqa Brigades over the issue of raising Yemeni flags.
