With approximately 38 dead and wounded within 34 violations, including 14 attacks and armed clashes in cities and residential areas, the detonation of two explosive devices, two kidnapping and killing crimes, a kidnapping and concealment crime, as well as murders and retaliation crimes brought on by the lack of justice, Shabwa topped the list of provinces with the highest number of casualties and injuries.
In the Bayhan area of the same province, a man also killed his sister and her daughter while injuring two other family members who tried to help. The fact that four people, including a lady from the same family, were slain in a shootout inside their home in the Sadr Baras neighborhood of the Al Saied district is additional evidence of reflection of the state of chaos in the province at the level of family relations.
The report also detailed 32 violations that resulted in 34 dead and wounded in Abyan province, including 12 armed clashes and attacks, the explosion of five explosive devices scattered throughout, and two citizens being tortured to death, one of whom had a psychological disorder; the other was from Ibb province and was kidnapped while traveling to Abyan, after which he was hidden and tortured to death.
