26 people have died and more than 50 people have been injured in a fierce attack on the Aden airport of Yemen, which is struggling with civil war. The attack occurred at a time when leaders of the Saudi Arabian-backed coalition government were alighting from their airplanes at the airport. All the leaders were returning after talks with the Saudi Arabian government. Yemen and Saudi Arabia have blamed Iran-backed Houthi rebels for this vigorous attack.
On the other hand, the Huti rebels have denied this attack. Live video of this explosion has now gone viral on social media. Huti rebels, who have been fighting the Saudi Arabian-led coalition for the past several years, now have extremely lethal weapons, missiles, and suicide drones. Earlier, a faction involved in this civil war had declared its rule in the city of Aden. The organization is seeking autonomy in southern Yemen.
Prime Minister Mein Abdulmalik was also present on the plane
In early December, Saudi Arabia announced that it had entered into an agreement between the group TSTC and President Abderrabuh Mansur Hadi. At the time of the latest attack, a large number of people were making videos of the arrival of cabinet officials. It is being told that Prime Minister Mayin Abdulmalik and Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to Yemen Al Jaber were also present on the plane. Initial reports said that mortars, rockets or drones, or all of them have been used in this attack near other airports.
It is also seen in the video that several explosions occurred one after the other. A missile targeted the paved road. The sound of firing was also heard during the attack. It is seen in the video that after the attack, the officers who were getting off the plane again ran in the plane. It is being told that all Yemen officials and the Saudi Ambassador escaped safely in this attack.
