 Director of the security department in Lahj governorate, Brigadier General Saleh Al Sayed and the commander of Shabwa Elite Forces, Lt. Col. Mohammed Salem Al-Buhar explicitly accused Qatar and legitimacy of sponsoring and supporting terrorism and terrorist acts in the southern governorates, including the provinces of Lahj and Shabwa.

In an interview with Abu Dhabi TV, Brigadier General Saleh Al Sayed said today that the Iran-backed Houthi coupist militia uses Al-Qaeda terrorist organization to carry out operations in Lahj with the support of Qatar and other forces in the region, affirming that the security and military forces managed to cleanse the governorate of terrorism and to drain its resources, adding that Lahj is a terror-free region.

For his part, Lt. Col. Mohammed Salem Al Buhar said clearly that the legitimacy sponsors terrorism in Shabwa through providing weapons to Al-Qaeda terrorist organization from the government-run military brigades in the province.

He pointed out that the recently formed Presidential Committee on Markha obstructed the anti-terror operations in the district, adding that the terrorist elements in Markha received reinforcement from Marib, Behan and al-Baydah.
