A Yemeni military source told “Sputnik” that two unidentified drones carried out two raids on the army in the coastal area of Shakra in the Khanfar district, east of Zinjibar, the capital of Abyan governorate.
The source added that the two strikes resulted in the injury of 4 soldiers and damaging a vehicle.
He referred to the army’s anti-aircraft attempt to shoot down the two drones prior to their departure.
In addition, the spokesman for the Fourth Military Region and the Abyan Axis Front, with the forces of the Transitional Council, Captain Muhammad al-Naqib, accused the Yemeni army of violating the ceasefire in Abyan Governorate.
The captain said, on his Twitter account, that the army launched intense shelling and various weapons on the sites of the STC forces in the coastal sector of Abyan.
He stressed that the transitional council forces responded to the bombing with force, indicating that destructive injuries were achieved by the sources of army fire, while confrontations are still continuing between the two parties.
The brave southern units of our forces stationed in the coastal sector were able to immediately respond to an attack launched by the Brotherhood militia and its terrorist elements, which fled and suffered great losses in lives and equipment.- Mohamed Al-Naqib (@M_Q_Alnaqib
