On December 30th, Adeeb Al-Janani was doing his job, reporting the incident live, then all of a sudden, shrapnel struck him in the abdomen; the communication with his work, Belqis Channel, was cut off and instead of reporting the ongoing incidents, the anchor reported his death following the Aden airport attack.

Al-Janani was admitted to the government hospital, however, the shrapnel was heavier than the medical intervention that sought to save his life and it sent him to the hereafter, bare his journalistic equipment and being a witness to the horrific crime.
