Yemen: Pro-government forces clash with jihadists after Red Cross worker killed

479

Five pro-government soldiers were killed and 19 others were wounded in clashes with jihadists in Yemen’s southern city of Taiz on Monday, shortly after the killing of an aid worker with the International Committee of the Red Cross, medics said.

Fierce clashes broke out in the city’s Jahmaliah district after an operation was launched against militants suspected to be behind the murder of the ICRC employee over the weekend, according to an officer, who was unable to provide further details.

Jahmaliah is controlled by pro-government forces but there is a militant presence in the area, a police officer told AFP.

But on Sunday, Taiz governor Amin Ahmad Mahmud, loyal to President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi, created a special force of police and army units tasked with battling militants he believes killed the ICRC employee on Saturday.
