Shabwa: A last Yemen safe zone turns unsafe, people begin fleeing in hundreds

Shabwa: A last Yemen safe zone turns unsafe, people begin fleeing in hundreds

 

Hundreds of people have reportedly begun fleeing the provincial capital of Shabwa  after the breakout of fighting between government troops on one side and S*di and U*E-backed separatists on the other as of yesterday.

Abed Al-Bayhani, a resident of the city, has arrived with his wife and five children to Marib this day on fears the confrontations may get worse. Separatists in the city's outskirts have reportedly been bombarding the city center intermittently since Tuesday in a bid to force the governmental special forces out of the city.

Ameen Sayf and his family also arrived in Marib and reported the displacement of tens of families or hundreds of people from Ataq toward the countryside of Shawa, Al-Abr, Sayoon and other relatively neighboring but far cities.

The U.A*E-ba.cked separatists have been amassing more forces and weapons around the city in a bid to advance despite the risks of a large scale civilian damage, emboldened by the decision of the presidential leadership council (a Sa*udi pu*ppet government assigned to lead Yemen in place of the real Hadi's government) to sack the commander of the special forces Abd-Rabbu Laakab.
