UAE-backed militias execute 2 men of north provinces in Lahj

LAHJ, Dec. 31 (YPA) – Militia of the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) on Tuesday executed two Yemeni citizens from the northern provinces in the occupied Lahj province, southern Yemen, sources reported.

Militias of the so-called security belt backed by the UAE stormed a popular restaurant in Tor al-Baha city in Lahj and liquidated two young men without regard for feelings of the citizens inside the restaurant, according to the sources.

Although similar hundreds incidents were recorded over the past years in the occupied Aden, the timing of the crime in Lahj indicates that there is a plan to normalize the abuse against people of the northern provinces in these border provinces, which could spark a civil war.
