ADEN, March 22 (YPA) – A military commander loyal to the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) was wounded, on Wednesday, in the battles of Yemen’s southern port city of Aden.

This was reported by Yemen News Portal, based on testimonies of medical sources.

According to medical sources, the emergency commander in the Land Protection Unit of the Security Belt forces affiliated with the STC, Abdul Samad Al-Omari, is currently under intensive care amid a deterioration of his health.
