Gunmen assassinate an academic opponents in  Dhamar university and injure his child


Gunmen assassinated the academic Dhamar University Mourad al-Qasimi on Thursday morning and seriously injured his 8-year-old daughter near his house in Dhamar city.

Eyewitnesses said that gunmen aboard a motorcycle attacked al- Qasimi and shot him alive while he was with his child in a street near his home in downtown, killing him instantly and seriously injuring his child.

Local sources said that al- Qasimi (Master of Management and professor at the University of Dhamar) was known for his severe and continuing criticism of the Houthi militias and his refusal of militarizing the University of Dhamar on an ongoing basis.

Assassinations in the city of Dhamar have been repeated against activists, politicians and academics opposed to the Houthi coup since the group took control of the city late in 2014.
