TAIZ, May 14 (YPA) – Unknown gunmen late on Tuesday assassinated two soldiers from the so-called “22nd Mika Brigade” loyal to Saudi-led coalition in the city of Taiz, southwest Yemen.

Unknown gunmen opened fire on the two soldiers, who are brothers Mohammed Saleh and Ahmed Saleh, at Al-Kahraba crossroads next to Yemen News Agency’s headquarters in central of the city, killing them immediately, according to sources.

The incident comes hours after the dismantling of two explosive devices placed among the piles of garbage next to Al-Modhaffar Hospital in the old city of Taiz.
