ADEN – An official of the state financial organisation was killed by unknown gunmen on Wednesday in Yemen’s southern city of Aden, witnesses said. The gunmen opened fire towards Faisal Dhabyan, an employee of the Control and Accounting Agency in al-Mansoura district.
The Central Organization for Control and Auditing (COCA) offered sincere condolences on Faisal Dhabyan, director of the technical sector in Aden branch. According to Saba News Agency, the head of COCA, Ali Al-Emad, considered what happened to Dhabyan a criminal cowardly act, coming as a continuation of the assassinations operations against the people, especially against those who try to combat corruption and maintain public funds.
At the same time, al-Emad holds the coalition’s authorities and its paid fighters full responsible for these crimes, calling on all members of the organisation in the governorates under its control to be vigilant against the criminal operations committed by armed elements and paid fighters affiliated with the Saudi-UAE forces.
The SAM Organization for Rights and Liberties, based in Geneva, has recorded 103 murders in Aden in the past three years alone, pointing out that the report adopted a statistical methodology based on monitoring and documenting the assassinations during the period from 2015 to 2018.
The organisation stated in a recent report titled “Invisible Killer” that the assassinations focus mainly on security men, preachers of mosques, and politicians.
The number of assassinations and the security disorder grow higher in Aden, since the United Arab Emirates, which is a main member of the Saudi-led coalition, took over the city in 2015.
