December 24 2001

Two civilians were reportedly killed by the military troops in al-Uzla village located in Jehaf mountains in Dhalea’a on December 22 and many houses were demolished, a source from the area said.
This came in retaliation to an ambush set by unidentified men for a military group belonging to the 35 Brigade stationed at the area on December 12, during which 3 soldiers were killed and two others injured.
A large group of the same Brigade rushed to the area on Thursday and started demolishing a number of houses, whose owners are suspected to have links to the ambush.
