Yemen’s army foiled an attempt to bomb a new oil tanker off the eastern coast of Al-Nusheimah of Shabwa on Tuesday night, informed sources said.
A militant cell from the Shabwani Elite, a foreign-backed paramilitary force, were arrested while trying to sneak into the Arabian Seaport of al-Nushaymah with IEDs and naval mines in their possessions “to blow up one of the oil tankers,” said a well-informed source.
Two weeks ago, other militiamen believed to belong to the Shabwani Elite too had bombed another tanker named SYRAD in the same place.
The Shabwani Elite and STC militias have been accused of recurrent bombing of oil pipelines with a view to disrupting oil production and topple the government.
