A military vehicle loaded with soldiers of the so-called Shabwani elite force ,backed by the UAE forces was ambushed overnight by Al-Qaeda elements in Shabwa province, a local official said on Tuesday.
The attack was followed by armed clashes in Naqba Valley in Habban district of Shabwa, wounding several of them from both sides, the official added .
A report by the American Washington Post newspaper has confirmed growing of the organization’s elements during the war led by the Saudi-led coalition forces in Yemen since March 2015.
Aden city, which was occupied by UK but now under the control of UAE, and the rest of the southern cities witnessed an insecurity situation that increased the assassinations of imams of mosques and security and military leaderships.The province of Aden witnesses a security fiasco that escalated with killings, looting issues , in addition to others that never happened before.The UAE took control of Aden under the pretext of confronting the so –called “Houthis” Yemeni army and supported the establishment and formation of armed elements there.
In March 2015, the US-Saudi-led coalition — mainly the united Arab Emirates and Jordan — started a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 600,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.
