Explosion hits security patrol in Aden

ADEN, Jan. 14 (YPA) – A powerful explosion rocked the southern port city of Aden on Thursday morning, local sources said.

According to the sources, an improvised explosive device exploded and targeted a security patrol of Aden security department, as it was passing through the entrance to the green city in Dar Saad district.

No human casualties have been reported so far, one of the sources said.

This came in the context of a fierce conflict between several parties in the so-called  “legitimacy”, which has been escalating  since the Aden airport attack two weeks ago .

Aden and other southern provinces have been witnessing assassinations and security disorder since United Arab Emirates occupation forces took control over the city.
