Woman kidnapped in occupied Aden due to land dispute

ADEN, Jun.10 (YPA) – Gunmen believed to be affiliated with the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC)   kidnapped a woman in the Yemeni’s southern port city of Aden, local sources said.

The abduction came a day after military forces occupied a piece of land belonging to the kidnapped woman’s family in the city.

According to the sources , the gunmen kidnapped “Mona Hashim Ismail” since last Friday, a day after security crews broke into a land owned by her husband Wahid Saeed Kulaib .

The husband blamed the security services in Aden for the kidnapping of his wife and demanded that she reveal her fate.

Mona Hashem works for a civil society organization in Aden, and the kidnapping shocked the Adani street and the extent of the situation.

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