 The southern armed forces thwarted on Monday morning an infiltration attempt conducted by the militias of Islah party, the military arm of Muslim Brotherhood organization within Yemen's legitimacy in the province of Abyan.

Military field sources said that the Brotherhood's militias launched in the early hours of Monday a desperate attack on the locations under the control of the southern forces on Sala front in a bid to retake lost ground.

The southern forces managed to repulse the attack, inflicting heavy human and material losses on the Brotherhood's militias, the same sources added.

The attack took place one day after the arrival of huge reinforcements, including military vehicles, heavy weapons and fighters coming from Yemen's Marib to support the Brotherhood's militias in Shuqra of Abyan.

Terrorist fighters of Al Qaeda and Daesh continue to arrive in Abyan in military uniform from Yemen's Marib governorate as reinforcements for the war to invade the South, well-informed sources reported.

In another development, Abdulrahman Abdullah Al-Hababi, a senior al-Qaeda leader was killed in Saturday's clashes with the southern forces in Shuqra.

Last Friday, the southern forces killed a number of Brotherhood's militants, including Haitham Al-Zamaki a senior leader of al-Qaeda and brother of the commander of the 3rd Brigade Presidential Protection, Loai Al-Zamaki and the al-Qaeda leader, Ahmed Ali Al-Qassma (Abu Khattab) following a failed attack in Abyan.
