Residents of Shabwah find undetonated explosive devices near road

Local residents in Mayfa’a district, Shabwah governorate, eastern Yemen, found new improvised explosive devices (IEDs).

This comes amid ongoing tension between the Saudi-led coalition factions in the oil-rich province.

Residents reported that they found the IEDs planted inside the flood ferries on the main road in the Malbouja area.

According to residents, the IEDs were set to target a military convoy belonging to the Emirati factions, which is constantly using that road.

This comes in light of the escalation of conflicts between the coalition factions, as the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) accused Saudi Arabia of coordinating between the Islah factions and al-Qaeda to fight a joint battle against the STC factions throughout the southern governorates.
