ISIS claims responsibility for Yemen military kitchen bomb attack

ISIS claims responsibility for Yemen military kitchen bomb attack”

Six soldiers were killed on Tuesday in a suicide auto bombing near a security center of the newly-recruited Yemeni troops in the southern port city of Aden, local police said.

The explosion happened near a security centre of Yemen troops in Aden's neighbourhood of Mansourah, Xinhua quotes the Interior Ministry in Aden source as saying.

Local residents said a booby-trapped auto hit a mess hall serving Yemeni forces trained by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in Sheikh Othman district in Aden.

A number of ambulances rushed to the bombing site to send the injured people to nearby hospitals.

There was no claim of responsibility for the attack.

But it also hosts jihadists of Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State group, who have both claimed attacks in the city in recent years.

According to a report by Yemen experts for the United Nations, the UAE-backed forces are primarily made up of Yemenis recruited from southern governorates, are paid an average of $800 per month and have been deployed in Abyan, Aden and Lahij.

It was the second attack of its kind targeting security forces in the city.

Aden is controlled by the Yemeni government and its allies in a Saudi-led coalition, who are battling Shiite Huthi rebels who control the capital Sanaa and much of the north.

The United Nations has listed Yemen as the country of world's number one humanitarian crisis, with 7 million Yemenis on the brink of starvation and cholera causing more than 2,000 deaths.
