Civilian shot dead by pro-coalition conscript in Aden

ADEN, Oct. 06 (YPA) – A citizen was shot dead by a conscript in the ranks of the Saudi-led coalition forces, in the port city of Aden, which is under the control of the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) militia in southern Yemen.

Local sources in Aden said that a recruit of the STC militia stopped a citizen near Abdulqawi intersection in the Sheikh Othman district, before he started shooting live bullets at him after a dispute between them, so that the citizen died immediately.

The killings and assassinations in the city of Aden have escalated since the return of the so-called “Presidential Council” backed by the coalition to the city last March
