Aden-Two separate attacks in southern Yemen killed at least 10 Yemeni soldiers believed to have been carried out by al-Qaeda militants, officials and state news agency Saba said Wednesday. ..

Saba reports that a convoy belonging to a Saudi-backed unit was attacked by men armed overnight using roadside bombs in Abian, killing three soldiers. He added that the bodies of the other two were recovered.

The second attack targeted troops at a checkpoint in Ateq, a southern town in Shabwah province, early Wednesday, killing five soldiers, Sabah said. Two Yemeni officials have confirmed two attacks on Reuters.

They said both attacks injured several people.

Yemen-based al-Qaeda (AQAP) on the Arabian Peninsula takes advantage of the seven-year-old conflict between the Houthi alliance with Iran and a Saudi-backed coalition. Strengthened.

Over the past decade, we have survived intensive campaigns from the U.S. military, coalitions, and Houthis, taking advantage of Yemen's mayhem, tribal sympathy, and the large, empty belts of South Yemen.

The attack occurred during a ceasefire, interrupting air, sea and land attacks, allowing imports into Houthi-controlled seaports and partial reopening of Sana'a Airport.

The ceasefire is the first comprehensive agreement in a conflict that has killed tens of thousands and put Yemen on the brink of famine. (Report by Mohammed Alghobari and Reyam Mukhashaf; edited by Nick Macfie)
