Yemeni security agencies thwart Saudi car bomb plot in Sanaa
Yemen's security services announce they foiled a plot by a Saudi-backed terrorist cell planning on detonating a car bomb in a public area.
Yemen's security services foiled a plot by Saudi intelligence, which intended to target some provinces using car bombs.
Yemen's SABA news agency learned that Saudi intelligence recruited a cell and tasked them with equipping three car bombs with the aim of blowing them up in public places in Sanaa and other provinces.
The security services also identified the identities of the recruiters, some of whom were government officials, such as Naji Ali Saede Munif, the commander of Marib's military police, Mohammad Yahya Suleiman, the head of the 3rd Military Zone's Psychological Warfare Division, and Ahmed Mohammed Al-Dhiai (a Special Security Forces officer).
Two people carrying IEDs were killed in Sanaa on Monday, and the explosive devices detonated while they were on their person, injuring more than five people, according to an initial tally, Yemeni Internal Affairs Ministry spokesperson Abdul Khaliq Al-Ajari told Al Mayadeen on Monday.
According to the top security official, investigations are underway to determine the circumstances of the incident and the motives behind the attack.
A Yemeni security source revealed on Monday that the security apparatuses would reveal today a security operation that thwarted a criminal plan directed by the Saudi intelligence.
