Ansar al-Sharia statement on ambush inBayda


Six Houthi apostates* lost their lives after being subjected to an ambush carried out by Ansar al-Sharia mujahideen in the province of al-Bayda Sunday night.

Our correspondent in al-Bayda explained that the mujahideen launched the ambush on a red Suzuki Grand Vitara in which Houthi apostates were traveling on their way from the city of al-Bayda to the city of Rida’a. Our correspondent indicated that upon the vehicle passing the ambush at exactly 7:00 pm, the mujahideen sprayed it with a barrage of bullets, leading to the death of those on board and the vehicle going up in flames before the mujahideen withdrew safely.

* Note: AQAP refers to Houthis as “rawafid/rafidites” as they follow the Zaidi Shi’a school of Islamic jurisprudence, which does not align with AQAP’s puritanical Salafi school of thought.

Dozens of Houthi apostates* were killed and injured this evening after an Ansar al-Sharia suicide bomber targeted a gathering of them at the al-Jafra hospital in the Majzar region of the Ma’rib province with a car bomb.

Akhbar Ansar al-Sharia’s correspondent in Ma’rib explained that the suicide bomber, Abu Jandal al-San’aani, drove a car laden with explosives into a gathering of Houthis at the hospital, which the Houthis had transformed into a headquarters at the expense of the public benefit for Muslims among the region’s residence. The correspondent indicated that the mujahideen’s targeting of a gathering of Houthis in al-Jafra verified its strategic importance for them do to the fact that it represents an advance of their fighters in the region.

He added that aside from the human casualties, the Houthis also suffered material losses represented in the destruction of 4 dump trucks, 3 four-wheel drive military vehicles and 2 armoured Hummers.

* Note: AQAP refers to Houthis as “rawafid/rafidites” as they follow the Zaidi Shi’a school of Islamic jurisprudence, which does not align with AQAP’s puritanical Salafi school of thought.
