Armed attack kills 2 STC militia members in Abyan

ABYAN, Sept. 14 (YPA) – Two militia members affiliated with the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) were killed on Monday when unidentified gunmen riding a motorcycle opened fire on them in Zenjbar city of Abyan province, southern Yemen.

The gunmen shot at members of the so-called “security belt”, while they were on board a truck to transport water on ‘Al-Kuz’ tour in central Zenjbar city and fled to an unknown destination, according to local sources.

The STC militias, which control Zenjbar, have been exposed to sudden attacks, since they took control of the city and expelled Islah Party militants from it in August 2019.
