Hadda Neighborhood Bombarded as Saleh Launches an Attack on Hamid Al-Ahmar’s Home

On June 3, 2011, President Saleh ordered his son Ahmed Ali, head of the Republican Guards to launch an attack on his opponent, Hamid Al-Ahmar’s home in Hadda neighborhood. The attack was launched from Al-Nahdayn mountain where there is a military base and weapon depot. The Attack lasted all day.

The very same day, there was attack within the compound of the Presidential Palace. After Friday prayers a little after noon, the President and his legion were exiting the vicinity’s mosque as it was attacked by rockets. The attacks were said to have been launched from within the vicinity of the compound. President Saleh suffered severe burns and critical injuries and was transported to a hospital in KSA for treatment. The recovery period is said to take up to 6 months. VP Abdel-Mansoor Al-Hadi has now taken active power; however there has been conflicting reports as Saudi’s claim is is Ahmed Ali, President Saleh’s son who has taken active power. This has yet to be confirmed.

This photo-essay is of resident homes that suffered heavy hits during the attack. Residents remain the victims of this political conflict and power struggle as they continue to get caught in the crossfire. A heavy price to pay for political retribution.
