Houthi drone bombs Yemen military parade, kills at least 6

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

SANAA –  A bomb-laden drone launched by Yemen’s Houthi rebels exploded over a military parade for the Saudi-led coalition and its allies on Thursday near the southern port city of Aden, killing at least six people in a brazen attack that threatened U.N.-brokered peace efforts to end the years-long war tearing at the Arab world’s poorest nation.

The attack at the Al-Anad Air Base, where American special forces once led their fight against Yemen’s al-Qaeda branch, targeted high-ranking military officials in Yemen’s internationally recognized government with what the rebel Houthis described as a new version of one of their drones.

The Houthis immediately claimed the attack through their al-Masirah satellite news channel, saying the attack targeted “invaders and mercenaries” at the base in the southern province of Lahj, leaving “dozens of dead and wounded.”
