Pro-coalition military officer assassinated in Aden

ADEN, May 11 (YPA) – A military officer loyal to the Saudi-led coalition was brutally assassinated on Wednesday afternoon in the city of Aden, southern Yemen.

According to local residents, gunmen executed “Salem al-Radfani”, in cold blood, in full view of several security men on the sea road in Aden.

Residents confirmed that security forces affiliated with the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC)’s militia were deployed in large numbers at the site of the assassination.

Pictures circulated on several of social media sites showed the gunmen shooting the victim with their personal pistols in the middle of the public road.

The Yemeni Press Agency was unable to verify the authenticity of those circulated photos.
