Statement on ongoing assassinations in the temporary capital of Aden

The Yemeni political parties are deeply concerned at the criminal assassinations carried out in the temporary capital of Aden and other governorates against dozens  of social, political and military figures, resistance leasers, religious scholars and mosque imams. The most recent crimes were the assassination of an activist of the Islah party, Ali al-Da’usi, the assassination attempt against the activist Dabwan Galib and the illegal arrest of two other activists in the governorate of Abyan.

While the political parties strongly condemn the crimes against civilians, th they affirm that such acts risk security and public order and hold Aden’s security authorities fully responsible for maintaining security, protecting civilians, pursuing perpetrators of assassinations and bring them to justice to be punished.

We assure that targeting political activists from any party is endangering political life as a whole and damaging coexistence and social peace, and driving  the country to be embroiled in a state of turmoil and turbulence in favor of hidden agendas which do not wish Yemen to be stable and secure.

We warn against the continuation of assassinations in the capital Aden which only aim to undermine the state institutions and the legitimate government , and plunge the country  into turmoil and disorder. These assassinations are in the interests of violence and turbulence groups, the Houthi coup and Iran’s projects in the region. They also shake the community confidence in the state security services.

The political parties emphasize the need for the Interior Ministry to do its duties, integrate security services and unite them under the command of the state. The security services must be in side of the legitimate government, protect the temporary capital of Aden and put an end to all violence and repression acts which are practiced against Yemenis in violation of the state laws and constitution. Aden must be the city of coexistence to all Yemenis and an exemplary model to all other Yemeni liberated areas. All Yemenis look forward to see Aden as the city of peace, political pluralism and varying culture, and free of hatred and  all forms of intolerance.
