Gunmen blow up oil pipeline in Shabwa

SHABWA, Aug. 03 (YPA) – Unidentified gunmen blew up on Wednesday a pipeline transporting crude oil in Shabwa province, which is under the UAE-backed forces control.

Local sources reported that unknown gunmen blew up the crude oil pipeline in Jol Al-Raydah area of Mayfa’a district.

Blowing up the crude oil pipeline is the second in the Mayfa’a area, east of Shabwa, with an explosive device, in the middle of last May, followed by another attack targeted the gas pipeline connecting from Marib to Balhaf, in the Jol Al-Shakh area in Radhom district, at the beginning of the same month.
