[24/July/2016]



MAREB, July 24 (Saba) – Violent clashes broke out Sunday between a group of Jada’an tribe sons and militia of the mercenary Hashim al-Ahmar in al-Jafrah area in Mareb province.

A local official said two of al-Ahmar militia were killed and three others were injured and four of the Jada’an tribe were wounded in the clashes.

He explained that the clashes broke out when the mercenary militia established checkpoints in the main road in al-Jafrah area, which was considered a provocation and an affront to the people of the area.

Such clashes come within the rejection of the mercenary militia existence in the tribal areas, the official said, pointing out that the last month witnessed fierce confrontation between Abidah tribes and the mercenary militia.
