Yemen's army bombards saboteur's house in Marib

 Yemen Post Staff

The Yemeni army bombarded on Sunday the house of an oil pipeline saboteur, Mohammad Kalfoot, in Wadi Abida of Marib governorate.

Local sources said that some population of Wadi Abida left their homes amid fears that they would have been raided.

Kalfoot, who is accused of attacking oil pipelines on Friday, responded to the military's bombardment of targeting the electricity towers.

The oil pipelines were subjected to attacks three times in Wadi Abida.

A number of Yemeni governorates are now living in darkness after the gas-run power station was assaulted by Kalfoot hours after his home was raided by the army.

Yemen's electricity supplies have been damaged many times since the eruption of the eleven-month-old protests. Yemen have lost billions of rials as a result of recurring attacks, official statistics say.

Yemeni officials and analysts accused the former regime led by Ali Abdullah Saleh of supporting those saboteurs who target power lines.

 

 

 

Power lines were subjected to hundreds of attacks since the outbreak of pro-democracy protests in February 2011, government sources said.

Electricity shortage had led to the paralysis of factories, laboratories, workshops and many service sectors, pushing further Yemenis to unemployment particularly in 2011.

Yemen approves use of helicopters against saboteurs

The Military Committee formed under the GCC-crafted power transfer deal has approved using of helicopters in the hunt of saboteurs.

The committee reversed two helicopters to pursue those who attack gas, oil and electricity facilitates and those who blockade main roads.
