ADEN, Aug 1 (Reuters) - An explosion struck a military parade in Aden, the seat of Yemen’s Saudi-backed internationally recognised government, causing numerous casualties on Thursday, a Reuters witness said.
The Houthi movement said it was behind the attack. Their official channel Al Masirah TV said the Iran-aligned movement had launched a medium-range ballistic missile and an armed drone at the military parade.
“The blast occurred behind the stand where the ceremony was taking place at Al Jalaa military camp in Buraiqa district in Aden,” the witness said. (Reporting by Reuters team in Yemen; Writing by Ghaida Ghantous Editing by Raissa Kasolowsky)
