DHALE (Debriefer)--A leader of the Islah Party has been shot dead in Yemen's southern province of Dhale.
Ahmed bin Ahmed Ali, head of the party's provincial bureau, was assassinated in mysterious circumstances after the sunset prayer in the district of Al-Azariq, the party's mouthpiece Alsahwa news website reported on Tuesday, adding that the attacker is called Abdullah Al-Shaybah.
A number of Islah leaders and members have been killed in Aden, Lahj and Dhale in recent years, including three in Dhale, according to the website.
A new wave of assassinations has been reported in lawless Aden and other southern cities, with activists linking new and previous killings to policies of member states of a Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen.
Last month, the party called for revealing the results of investigations into and the identities of those responsible for the assassinations of tens of its members, including politicians, military and security personnel, activists and clerics in Aden during the past four years.
