A spokesman for the group explained that the attacks were revenge for the killing of the “emir of the mujahedeen” in the province of Abyan, Jamil al-Ambari, and the death of jihadist Samir al-Sanaani. The men were killed together with another terrorist leader on March 14 by government troops. The terrorists also claimed responsibility for the killing and wounding of “dozens of people”.
