Citizen shot dead in Taiz city

TAIZ, Aug. 23 (YPA) – A citizen was shot dead on Sunday night by a gunman affiliated with Islah Party militia in central Taiz city, southwest Yemen.

The citizen Ammar Al-Hilali, who works on a motorbike to support his family, was killed by six bullets that penetrated his body while he was near a café in Al-Tahrir area, for no apparent reason.

The gangs of Islah militias spread in the city have carried out many assassinations against citizens and social figures, the most recent of which was the genocide of the Al-Harq family in mid-August, in light of the insecurity in the areas under the control of the Saudi-led coalition.
