DHALEA, Jan. 07 (YPA)  – Armed men assassinated a physician as he was leaving a mosque in Dhalea province, southern Yemen, media sources reported on Sunday.

The sources said that the doctor, Qaid Houra, was assassinated by gunmen the moment he left the mosque after last Friday prayers.

This is not the first time that assassinations have occurred in the city of Al-Dhalea, which is witnessing security chaos and acts of killing, robbery, and banditry, as well as almost daily armed confrontations between the warring southern factions.
