A leader in the "Southern Resistance" survived an assassination attempt west of Aden


An explosive device exploded Monday morning as the convoy of the southern resistance council leader Abdel Nasser al-Ba’wa passed in al-Sha’ab area of al-Buraiqa district west of Aden, but he survived the incident while the vehicle in which he was travelling suffered some damage.

A source told "Al-Masdar Online" that Abdel Nasser al-Ba’wa, who is known as "Abu Hammam al-Yafei", survived the explosion of an explosive device that exploded in conjunction with the passage of his convoy as he returned home in the neighborhood of "Abu Harba" west of Aden, coming from al-Sha’ab city, where he chairs the Southern Resistance Council.

Abu Hammam al-Yafei leads the Resistance Council, which was established in 2016 and was the leader of a faction in the battles against the Houthis near al-Anad in 2015 and was captured by the Houthis at the time, but was later released  in a prisoner exchange deal between the Houthis and the southern resistance.

Abdel Nasser al-Yafei is one of the most prominent southern leaders who has not joined the Southern Transitional Council.
