ADEN: A roadside bomb in Yemen’s southern city of Aden aimed the convoy of a Saudi-backed provincial governor but he was safe, witnesses stated on Tuesday. Few people were hurt in the attack on Governor of Taiz province and a member of Yemen’s internationally recognized government in exile, Ameen Mahmood.
An official at the governor’s office mentioned to the Reuters that, “The governor was not injured, but some of the escorts were injured and taken to hospital.” The number of murders and bombings in Aden has enlarged dramatically in spite of the presence of the Yemeni president and his government in the coastal city. Elsewhere, the Yemeni army stated that a family was murdered by a Houthi bombing in Al-Sada village in Hajjah province, as per Al-Ekhbariya.
The army mentioned that the Iranian-backed Houthi militia are bombing and aiming civilians in Hajjah following field losses. Hayran directorate in Hajjah province has also become a breaking point for militia after defeats in Midi and Harad. Yemeni National Army forces are approaching violent confrontations in the Aham triangle, which is only six kilometers away from the center of Harad. Military operations are specially important in the coastal provinces of Hajjah since they contribute to fastening shipping lines off Yemen’s coast.
Col. Turki Al-Maliki, Saudi-led Arab Coalition Spokesperson, noted that Yemeni forces have reached the center of Hayran after it bypassed Houthi elements, and demolished their fortifications. A number of villages and farms in Hayran had been freed from the clutches of the Iranian-backed militia and are now under control of the Yemeni army and the coalition. During the operation, Yemeni forces recovered light, medium and heavy ammunition, including heat rockets.
