The Yemeni army managed to retake control of a key ammunition factory called 7 October located in the southern trouble-torn province of Abyan, leaving at least 25 militants killed, local sources told the local news website al-Masdar on Monday. The troops assisted by the tribal militias, which were formed to help the army kick the militants out from Zinjubar and Ja'ar, regained control over the key ammunition factory after fierce clashes with the militants, the sources said. The sources, according to al-Masdar, added that the calashes erupted in the early hours of Monday and lasted until 10 a.m. The army troops advanced towards Ja'ar and they are positioned at its entrances ready to storm the town. They noted that at least 4 soldiers were killed and two others wounded. War planes accompanied with heavy artillery shelling on the militants' hideouts helped the troops advance and achieve progress in the battles which forced thousands of families to evacuate their homes. Tow civilians were wounded as a result of the army air strikes, according to the sources. The army has stepped up its operations in Abyan with the aim of eliminating the al-Qaeda-linked militants in Abyan, Being significantly hit by the intensive army attacks, al-Qaeda resorted to carrying out deadly suicide attacks, which left hundreds of soldiers killed and others wounded. Last month,the terror network claimed responsibility for a suicide attack in Sana'a. The deadly attack left more than 100 soldiers performing rehearsals for a parade killed and other 300 wounded.
