Over a dozen hurt as blasts hit Yemen mosques
At least 13 people, including three children, have been injured in a couple of bomb explosions hitting two Yemeni mosques, amid ongoing Saudi military aggression against the impoverished country.
The injuries came after a bomb went off at a Shia mosque, named al-Sayyah, in the Yemeni capital city of Sana’a on Friday, the Akhbar al-Yemen television channel reported.
Reports say the ISIL Takfiri terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the bombing.
The ISIL terrorists, who are mainly operating in Syria and Iraq, have conducted many gruesome acts in the two countries.
Meanwhile, another bomb blast ripped through the Al-Ehsan Mosque in the al-Damghah district of Yemen’s southwestern province of Ta’izz, the Yemeni al-Masirah TV network reported. There have been no reports of casualties so far.
Saudi aggression against Yemen
Saudi warplanes carried out six airstrikes on the Harad district in Yemen’s northwestern province of Hajja on Friday, according to latest reports.
Saudi Arabia started its military aggression against Yemen on March 26, without a UN mandate, in a bid to undermine Yemen’s Ansarullah movement and restore power to fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who is a close ally of Riyadh.
The United Nations says, since March 19, over 1,800 people have been killed and 7,330 wounded as a result of the conflict in Yemen.
