ABYAN, Dec. 5 (YPA) – Islah militants on Saturday made significant military advances on Abyan province, southern Yemen, local sources reported.

Field sources told Yemen Press Agency that al-Islah militants have taken control of the strategic al-Sarari mountain range north of Zinjibar city, about 18 km away from the Darjaj area.

The sources confirmed that a number military pickup vehicles were seen at an insane speed heading towards the city of Aden, carrying  dead and wounded.
