LAHJ, Oct. 16 (YPA) – A recruit of the so-called “security belt force” of the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) was shot dead by gunmen on Thursday in Lahj province, southern Yemen.

Gunmen shot at and killed the soldier in the Security Belt Forces, Ali Abdulhakim Al-Aghbari, sources said.
