Residents in Sana'a are gripped by fear

 Yemen Post Staff

 

As military helicopters are roaming the sky of the capital, echoing fear throughout , Yemenis have been glued to their TV screens and computers, scanning every new bit of information with apprehension, anxious to see the terror threat pass without any incident.
A US official said on the matter, "This was significant because it was the big guys talking, and talking about very specific timing for an attack or attacks."
US intelligence officials have confirmed that the intercepted conversations revealed one of the most serious plots against US and Western interests since t September 11, 2001.
Moreover, reports that al-Qaeda operatives would already have infiltrated Sana'a have increased a deep-seated feeling of unease, with residents wondering whether they should at all venture outside as Ramadan is drawing to a close.
"How can we secure major shopping districts?" asked a resident, "What if al-Qaeda decides to target Yemenis instead of foreign interests now that the military has secured all buildings? Who is ensuring our protection?" asked another concerned family man.
A retired military officer, who requested anonymity questioned the security alert, theorizing that by divulging such information to the public the authorities had in essence tipped off al-Qaeda and probably prompted the group to postpone or change its plans, thus endangering the population as the group would be likely to act irrationally.
For Sana'a, the wait continues.
