UAE-backed separatist continue attacks on Yemeni villages at Taiz-Lahj border

The UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) militias continued on Wednesday to bomb the inhabited villages in the border areas between Taiz and Lahj provinces, in southern Yemen.

Local sources said that the STC’s militia bombed, from its positions in the “Al-Dawari” mountains, the homes of citizens in the village of “Hamalah” in the Karish district, north of Lahj province.

The sources confirmed that the artillery bombardment has continued since this afternoon, using various types of artillery shells.

This comes after 3 days of fierce confrontations that erupted between the STC militia and the Sanaa forces in Karish, which led to dozens of deaths and injuries on both sides, including field military leaders in the ranks of the STC.
