ABYAN: With assistance from the Arab Coalition, led by Saudi Arabia, to support the legitimate government of Yemen, and as part of the ongoing “Operation Sweeping Torrent,” the Security Belt and Rapid Intervention forces raided bases controlled by Al Qaeda in Al Mahfad District, Abyan Governorate.

The operation led to the arrest of six Al Qaeda members, including the head of the group’s finances and the cousin of a local Al Qaeda leader, Nasser Mubarak Al Mahel.

The operation and arrests in Al Mahfad and Wadi Himara in Abyan are significant, as they were the last Al Qaeda strongholds in the governorate.

The forces seized a large number of missiles, ammunition, and bombs, which Al Qaeda planned to use to terrorise innocent civilians. They also combed the area for pockets of remaining terrorists after hundreds of Al Qaeda elements fled the area following the raid.
