Two soldiers were wounded today's morning in an exchange of fire in Khormaksar, Aden, South Yemen, according to "South24" correspondent.

Local sources reported that a dispute over the salary distribution process for one of the security units prompted the incidence, forcing security forces to intervene to control it.

Medical sources also indicated that a soldier was seriously injured in the head and was taken to hospital.

The Security Committee in Aden announced the formation of an investigation committee to investigate these events. It stated that it would take "strict measures" against all those responsible.
