A terrorist plot detected
The information assistant at the ministry, Mohammed Al-Mawrei, confirmed that there was no truth to the rumor that a man had been captured disguised in female clothes.
Meanwhile, a security source at the ministry said that incriminating documents were found in a house in Hizyaz, south of Sana'a.
Aysh Awas, a researcher at Sheba Strategic Center, told the Yemen Times that Al-Qaeda is utilizing trickery and deception in its war; he added that the tactic of disguising militants as military is far from new.
Several militant operations have been executed using disguises, such as the Al-Sabeen Square bombing in May and the American embassy incident that took place in 2009.
Awas indicated that the main reason for explosions in Sana'a and the increase of the terrorist plots are due to divisions within the military and the lack of coordination between the security forces.
The ministry noted that this operation was detected following directions aimed at intensifying the security measures for government, security and military compounds in anticipation of an attack.
The ministry has already announced their endorsement of a security plan to guard government infrastructures, security locations and embassies in Sana'a and some other governorates during the month of Ramadan.
