Gen. Qassim Laboza, the commander of the 2nd Infantry Division, survived an attack by suspected Al-Qaeda militants on a military patrol in Shabwa province, according to the sources.

Two soldiers were killed in the attack.

Yemeni authorities have yet to comment on the attack, for which no group has yet claimed responsibility.

Yemen has been struggling to maintain law and order since the ouster of long-serving president Ali Abdullah Saleh in 2012.
