MP survives assassination attempt in Ibb
The armed men opened fire on his car which had stopped behind the Al-Fakhama Hotel. A grenade was thrown towards the car as well, though Qa’asha was not in the vehicle. The perpetrators fled the scene on motorcycle with an accompanied car.
Anwar Hatim, the forensic department manager in Ibb, said the incident was an obvious assassination attempt, adding that the perpetrators were as of yet unknown.
He said that Qa’asha’s car windows were opaque; the armed men mistakenly believed that he was inside it.
“Fortunately, Qa’asha was not in the car. The armed men reckoned he was there. Once his car stopped, they moved quickly, firing at the car and hurling a grenade. The driver was injured by shrapnel and he was immediately taken to hospital.. To date, we don’t know the motive or the assailants,” Parliament security officer, SalahAhmed said.
