Long seen as a rare safe haven in conflict-ravaged Yemen, the province of Shabwa is increasingly becoming a flashpoint of unrest where terror attacks strike frequently.
Early today, unknown gunmen engaged the government forces killing five soldiers and injuring eight others. The unknown gunmen launched a surprise fire assault on a checkpoint in the provincial capital, Ataq, supposedly the most fortified part of Shabwa province, incurring the said casualties.
Such attacks have become frequent as of late 2021 when its succ.essful go.vernor was sa.cked by Sa.udi pre.ssure.
