Yemeni Abyan sees gov't-STC renewed infighting

2020-07-11 | Since 1 Week

Abyan has been witnessing violence fighting since last May

Abyan (Debriefer) - Skirmishes renewed on Saturday between the Yemeni internationally-recognized government and Southern Transitional Council (STC) in the southern governorate of Abyan.
A ceasefire has been held between the two sides in Abyan since late June, with Saudi-led coalition's observers stationed in the governorate to monitor the truce in flashpoints of Shoqra, Sheikh Salem and Taria areas.
Government troops and Emirati-backed STC forces exchanged sporadic mortar shelling, military sources in Abyan said, after mortar shells fell near to frontlines separating two sides.
Traffic movement stopped following the mortar shelling, eyewitnesses said.
Since last May, Abyan has been witnessing violence fighting as the government army tries to advance in and retake control of Zinjobar, the provincial capital of Abyan.
