Commander of UAE-backed forces survives assassination attempt

A commander in the so-called “Shabwah Defense” forces funded by the UAE survived from an assassination attempt in Shabwah province, eastern Yemen.

Local sources in the province confirmed that unidentified gunmen targeted the convoy of the leader in Shabwah Defense forces, Musaed Al-Harthy, which led to the injuring of a number of his companions, without knowing who was behind the attack.

The sources pointed out that the gunmen set up an armed ambush for Al-Harthy at the entrance to Markha area, amid initial accusations of the “Al-Amaliqa Brigade” members of being behind the attack.
