Islah leader in Taiz and local authority official in Shabwa escape assassination attempts

Yemen Islah Party leader escaped today an assassination attempt by an explosive device planted by unknown assailants outside his home in Sharaab District, northern Taiz Governorate, central Yemen.  

 

A local source told Almasdaronline that Abduljabbar Abdul Salam Alhamidi, Islah Party leader, was slightly injured in the bomb blast while his security guard was seriously injured.

 

This is the second time that Alhamidi is exposed to an assassination attempt, as previously unidentified gunmen tried to assassinate him early last October with an improvised explosive device near the Government Compound in Sharaab District. 

 

Abduljabbar Alhamidi is one of the political leaders and social figures that enjoy the confidence and appreciation of the people of Sharaab District due to his positions against the former regime and the coup, and his endeavors with other parties to spare the Sharaab District the war.

 

In a similar context, a local authority official was wounded and his security guard was killed today in an attack by unknown assailants on his car in Ataq City in Shabwa Governorate, southeastern Yemen, a local source told Almasdaronline. 

 

The source told Almasdaronline that gunmen intercepted the car of the Director General of Rural Electricity of Shabwa Governorate, Mr. Alaji, in the centre of the governorate and showered his car with fire injuring him and killing one of his security guards.

 

The local source pointed out that the injured were taken to Aataq Central Hospital, while the party responsible for the attack remains unknown as well as the motives of the armed attack.
