According to the information received from GGK military sources, an explosive device detonated at the western entrance of the Mudiye district of Ebyen while the military vehicle belonging to the 3rd Brigade of the GGK was passing.
In the explosion, 2 soldiers in the vehicle were killed and 5 soldiers were injured.
No one has claimed responsibility for the explosion so far.
Ebyen has been the scene of attacks and explosions for several months, mostly targeting military vehicles and checkpoints.
Claiming that successive governments in Yemen discriminated against the southern provinces politically and economically and demanding the separation of the south of the country from the north, the GGK controls most of the southern provinces of Aden, Shabwa, Socotra and Ebyan.
civil war in Yemen
In Yemen, where political instability has prevailed for a long time, clashes are taking place between the Houthis and government-affiliated forces.
The Houthis have been in control of the capital Sana’a and some regions since September 2014, while the coalition forces led by Saudi Arabia have been supporting the Yemeni government against the Houthis since March 2015.
Regional and international efforts to find a comprehensive political solution to the crisis in Yemen, which has been the scene of a civil war for nearly 9 years, continue intensely.
