Local sources in Abyan governorate reported that about 22 soldiers were killed and wounded today, Sunday, in an air attack that targeted an army camp in Abyan governorate. The Houthi militia is believed to be involved, although the bombing came after threats issued yesterday by the leader of the transitional militia, Aidarous Al-Zubaidi.
Military sources said that an air strike targeted a mosque in the headquarters of the Fifth Infantry Brigade in the Mudiyah district, killing two soldiers and wounding 20 others while performing the noon prayer.
The attack came in conjunction with a military escalation of the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council militias in Abyan and the dispatch of military reinforcements to the governorate after the latter lost the Lauder district following a rebellion led by the STC militia, in refusal to the Minister of Interior’s decision to dismiss the Lauder Security Director.
Yesterday, Saturday, Aidarous Al-Zubaidi, head of the so-called Transitional Council, vowed during a military meeting, the government forces to “pay the price”, after the security forces took control of the entire Lauder district.
