A prominent leader of the Islah party, Dabwan Ghaleb, survived an assassination attempt while he was driving his car in the occupied southern city of Aden on Thursday, according to media affiliated to the Muslim Brotherhood.
The head of the media department of the Islah party Khalid Haidan, told the Anadolu media Agency that Debwan Ghaleb, a member of the executive office of the party in Aden and head of the union department, escaped an assassination attempt that involved an explosive device planted in his car in the city of Mualla in Aden, southern Yemen.
He added that unidentified men placed an explosive device under the seat of the car of Debwan when it was parked in front of his house, but he discovered the explosive device when he inspected the car before he rode it, noting that the bomb disposal technicians were then called to help the situation.
The assassination attempt came only two days after the killing of a leader affiliated with the Islah party and the so-called “Popular Resistance” Ali al-Duoaasi, where the case was completely neglected by the security authorities in the Saudi/UAE-held province.
Since the occupation of Aden by the UAE forces, the coastal province has been witnessing bombings, assassinations and abductions, whereas the city has been facing the targeting of security and government headquarters, mosque preachers, officers, soldiers and judges.
