Two soldiers were killed and seven injured in an explosion targeting UAE-backed military chiefs in Aden

ADEN (Debriefer)--The logistics and support forces of the UAE-backed southern transitional council have vowed a painful response to terrorists after an explosion targeted the convoy of their chiefs.

Explosive devices were remotely detonated as the convoy of the commander of the forces Brig. Gen. Mohsen Al-Wali and the chief of staff of the forces Brig. Gen. Nabil Al-Mashwashi was passing through the town of Al-Sha'ab in the district of Al-Buraiqah, according to a statement by the forces.

Two soldiers were killed and five injured in the explosion, the statement said, adding that the explosive devices were put inside a trash can.

Such explosions will never deter us from doing our responsibilities, defending Aden and the south, preserving security in them and hunting terrorists, they said.

The STC has been controlling Aden, which is the interim capital of Yemen's internationally recognised government, since mid-2019.
