Yemeni father flees fighting in one city, tragically loses entire family in another
A Yemeni man who escaped with his family from the Houthis in Taiz to Aden a month ago lost all his family members in the terror attack which ISIS carried out against the headquarters of a Yemeni counter-terrorism unit on Saturday night.
Yemeni activists shared a video of Abdullah Ahmed al-Khulaidi as he mourned his wife and children, one daughter and two sons, whom he was trying to protect by taking to Aden.
Khulaidi and his family were enjoying their time outdoors, along with plenty of other Yemeni families, when the terror attack happened.
According to eye witnesses, Khulaidi’s daughter was screaming that her brother Elias died after the attack happened. She died later of her injuries.
What happened to Khulaidi’s family is only one example of what Yemenis have been going through ever since the Houthi Movement staged its coup in the end of 2014 and helped provide a fertile ground for terrorism and extremism.
