Sana'a- Ansar Al-Sharia, an offshoot of Al-Qaeda in Abyan governorate to the south of Yemen, announced Saturday Takfir of president Abd Rabu Mansour Hadi, calling for combating him, local sources said.
Emirati Erem News Agency quoted local sources as saying Al-Qaeda gathered for a sermon in the Old Mosque of Zunjibar city where Abi Abas Alhadrami, a leading member of the group, said president Hadi is an "infidel," urging followers to fight him.
Al-Qaeda militants have spread in Yemen's south, capitalizing on the lax security situation the country has been seeing due to the civil war between Iran-backed Houthis and pro-Hadi forces in several governorates around the country.
