Gunmen Attack Security, Military Installations in Central Yemen

 Yemen Post Staff

Gunmen attacked on Wednesday the headquarters of the political security and a military camp in Dhamar province in central Yemen but there have been o reports of damage and casualties, state media reported quoting local officials.
“Two gunmen, who were onboard a motorcycle, threw a bomb at the political security building at night and another attacker threw another bomb at the gate of the Qeshla military camp in the morning,” the local security officials were quoted as saying. There were no casualties and investigations have been launched into the two incidents, the sources added.
Almasdar Online, however, reported that three gunmen detonated a bomb at night at the political security building and quoted local sources as saying that they saw ambulances and other vehicles rushing to the explosion site.
Yemen has been experiencing alarming security disorder amid sporadic battles with Al-Qaeda militants in central and southern parts and persistent political unrest as the country is gearing up for a comprehensive national dialogue.
The country has the most dangerous armed groups in the region: Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula QAP, the most dangerous branch of the global Qaeda network, and the Shiite Houthi Group which is receiving Iranian support.
AQAP has been involved in deadly attacks against security and military commanders, personnel, installations and other targets since the army drove all militants out of their strongholds in Abyan and Shabwa provinces.
Also, there are armed tribesmen who control some areas where the state is unable to impose the rule of law and increasing arms smuggling adds to all problems threatening Yemen’s stability.
