A Yemeni military commander survived an assassination attempt Monday in the southern province of Ad Dali'.

Unidentified militants fired two RPGs at the vehicle of Abdullah Dabaan, the commander of the 33rd Brigade, the Yemeni defense ministry reported on its website.

Six soldiers were injured in the attack, according to the website.

There was no claim of responsibility for the attack.

Yemen has been dogged by turmoil since pro-democracy protests in 2011 forced autocratic president Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down after 33 years in power.

In recent months, scores of security personnel have been killed in attacks across the country, which officials blame on suspected Al-Qaeda-linked militants.
