Yemen: Senior Al-Qaeda Militant Detained İn Aden

By Mohamed al-Samei


Yemeni police forces on Wednesday detained a senior al-Qaeda leader in the southern Aden city.


In a statement, police said the militant, identified as "Abu Azrael", was nabbed during a security operation in eastern Aden.


According to the statement, the militant was responsible for a spate of assassinations in the southern city.


There was no comment from al-Qaeda group.


Last week, Yemeni police said a senior al-Qaeda militant had been detained in Aden.


Yemen fell into a civil war in late 2014 when Houthi rebels overran capital Sanaa and other provinces, forcing President ABD Rabbuh Mansour Hadi and his Saudi-backed government to temporarily flee to Riyadh.


In March of last year, Saudi Arabia and its Arab allies launched a massive military campaign in Yemen aimed at reversing Houthi gains and restoring Hadi's embattled government.


Backed by Saudi-led airstrikes, pro-Hadi forces have since managed to reclaim large swathes of the country's south -- including provisional capital Aden -- but have failed to retake Sanaa and other strategic areas. -
