At least one dead and 11 wounded in Taiz explosion

At least a citizen was killed and 11 others wounded on Sunday in an explosion occurred in the center of Al-Turbah city of Al-Shamayatien district, south of Taiz province.

Medical sources in the city stated that unidentified gunmen detonated an explosive device in a passenger bus carrying citizens, leaving approximately one person dead and 11 others injured near one of the points affiliated with Islah Party militants.

According to the sources, the wounded were taken to the city’s hospitals, without revealing who was behind the attack.

Pro-UAE researchers had said last August that the terrorist organization had appointed “Abu Hammam Al-Tazi” as the emir of the so-called “Taiz Wilayat” in the areas under the control of Islah, taking the city of Al-Turba as the organization’s headquarters.
