The Mujahideen of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (aka Ansar al-Sharia) offered the Saleh's regime a deal to release 400 Mujahideen from prisons of the ruling regime in return for retreat of their fighters from the recently liberated town of Radda.

Sheikh Tariq al-Dahab, Emir of Al-Qaeda in Radda (province of al-Baydah), told tribal mediators that the AQAP units would retreat from the town if the so-called "transitional government" of Saleh's regime sets free at least 400 Mujahideen from puppets' torture chambers n Sana'a.

"They also demanded the court to introduce the Sharia Islamic Law in the town", a puppet official said on condition of anonymity.

The official of the Yemeni ruling regime's intelligence Political Security Agency said that "nearly all al-Qaeda prisoners in south and southeast Yemen were liberated over the past months by their fellows, lwhich happened in the provinces of Aden, Shabwa and Lahj. Or the prisoners broke out on their own by digging tunnels, which happened in Mukalla (province of Hadramawt) on June, 22, 2011".

But in Sanaa, there is still a large number of Muslim prisoners, supporting Jihad, said the puppet intelligence official who asked to remain anonymous.

Apparently, the Mujahideen's proposal to withdraw their forces from Radda in exchange for the establishment of Sharia law and the release of Muslim prisoners from the jails of Saleh's regime was dictated by the fears that the town would be turned intothe second Zinjibar where civilians were subjected to endless bombings by the Yemeni puppets.

However, the proposal of al-Qaeda command was rejected by the regime of Saleh and intelligence officials in Sana'a.

"The government will not agree to the demand of the terrorists of releasing their jailed operatives", according to a brief statement by a senior puppet official of the regime.

Meanwhile, the Mujahideen continue operations also on the southern front. Thus, on Wednesday morning, the AQAP fighters attacked a vehicle with a senior ringleader in the southern port city of Aden, reported Xinhua.

Mobile squad of Mujahideen opened heavy fire with automatic weapons at the vehicle of the intelligence and security ringleader of the Saleh's regime, General Ghazi Ahmad Ali, when he returned home, passing near Aden University. Ali miraculously survived from the attack, and two his bodyguards were seriously injured. 

The Mujahideen "fired a hail of bullets at General Ghazi's car, but he survived the attack, he was not injured", said one of the security officers of the regime.

"This is the third unsuccessful attempt at Ghazi", he said, adding that "the incident was in style" of the Mujahideen of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

Before leaving the place of the special operation, the mobile squad of the Mujahideen entered into a gunfight with local puppet security forces.
