Three soldiers loyal to the United Arab Emirates were wounded Tuesday in a bomb attack
on a security post in the southern Yemeni province of Aden.
The eighth sector of the UAE-backed security belt forces said in a statement that "an explosive device placed in a scrap civilian car exploded near the site of a security checkpoint in Abdul Qawi's tour of Sheikh Othman Directorate, wounding three soldiers, one seriously wounded."
The statement added that the explosion also caused material damage.
The UAE-backed separatist Southern Transitional Council (STC) security belt has controlled Aden since August 10 after violence battles with Yemen's internationally recognized government forces, which lasted four days, killing and injuring dozens of parties.
