JMP: There was a collision behind the massacre of Abyan

 Yemen Post Staff

The alliance of the Joint Meeting Parties (JMP) has said there was a collision behind the massacre committed against the Yemeni military in Al-Kood and Dofas in Abyan.

 

More than 140 troops of the Yemeni military were killed last weekend in an attack supposedly carried out by the so-called Ansar Al-Sharia (supporters of Sharia), a terrorist group connected to Al-Qaeda in southern Yemen.

 

JMP condemned the terrorist attacks against the soldiers, describing them as brutal crimes and demanding President Abdu Rabo Mansour Hadi to swiftly investigate into the incident, and bring the responsible to justice.

 

Yemeni politicians and analysts accused the ousted Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh of using Al-Qaeda to intimidate some Western countries with the aim of keeping his relatives in their military positions.

 

Ali Al-Jaradi, a political analyst, pointed out that Saleh with along with other military commanders operates to provide Al-Qaeda with weapons to hinder the achievement of the Yemeni revolution's demands.

 

Adnan Al-Odaini, a leader of the Islah Party, called the Yemeni parliament to assume its responsibilities towards the killing of the soldiers, stressing that military commanders were involved in providing Al-Qaeda with weapons and military equipment.

 

Yahya Jaber, a writer with interest in the Islamist groups, said Saleh attempts to persuade the global world that the stay of his relatives in power is a guarantee to defeat Al-Qaeda.

 

Yemeni analysts said that the Yemeni military did not use.

 

The US State Department condemned the killing of the Yemeni soldiers, expressing deepest condolences to the families, loved ones and friends of the victims.

 

In recent years, the United States has provided hundreds of millions of dollars-worth of equipment and training designed to help Yemen’s Special Forces counter Al-Qaeda.

 

However, Yemeni analysts said these forces were used against peaceful protests and that they did not took part in fighting Al-Qaeda.
