Alsahwa Net- Yemen cabinet has discussed the ban of arms bearing in the temporary capital, Aden, and other liberated areas, the Yemeni News Agency (Saba) said.
This plan comes after a wave of assassinations terrifyingly plagued South Yemen during past months.
Aden and other southern governorates have been witnessing a wave of assassinations against activists, mosque preachers, government soldiers and political activists. All the assassination cases remain an unresolved mystery since no one case was investigated into or any arrests in connection with the crime were made.
Yemeni political parties expressed deep concern at the criminal assassinations carried out in the temporary capital of Aden and other governorates against dozens of social, political and military figures, resistance leaders, religious scholars and mosque imams.
It is widely feared that extremists could be behind the assassinations of mainstream clerics to create a vacuum for extremist preachers.
While the political parties strongly condemned the crimes against civilians, they affirmed that such acts risk security and public order and hold Aden’s security authorities fully responsible for maintaining security, protecting civilians, pursuing perpetrators of assassinations and bring them to justice to be punished.
“Aden must be the city of coexistence to all Yemenis and an exemplary model to all other Yemeni liberated areas. All Yemenis look forward to see Aden as the city of peace, political pluralism and varying culture, and free of hatred and all forms of intolerance,” they added.
