The Mansoura neighborhood in the central Aden was the scene of a number of terrorist assassinations that targeted officers, soldiers freedom fighters and judges. Terrorist groups made the neighborhood their den as they launched car bombs and snipers to carry out terrorist attacks and assassinations in several parts of the city.
Aden almost turned into a nest for terrorist and assassinations but nowadays its inhabitants enjoy a great deal of security and stability after the army raided the hideouts of these terrorist groups. Security forces captured many sleeper cells and within months, they were able to stop the further assassinations.
Normalization of life in Aden has enabled people to return to their jobs and move around their city day and night as security forces continue to protect the neighborhoods and streets.
In recent months, the series of assassinations stopped significantly by virtue of the raids and arrests executed by the security forces.
