IS Car Bomb in Yemen Kills 3 in Attack on UAE-Backed Forces

SANA’A – A car bombing claimed by the Islamic State terror organization in Yemen killed at least three people and wounded 20, including civilians, in the southern port city of Aden at the entrance of a base belonging to Yemeni security forces backed by the United Arab Emirates, medical sources told EFE on Tuesday.

IS claimed responsibility shortly after the attack in a statement broadcast on the Telegram messaging network, the authenticity of which could not be verified.

The car bomb exploded in front of one of the positions of the Security Belt militias, financed and formed by the UAE, witnesses told EFE.

The base in the northern part of the city was used as a kitchen, where food was prepared for members of the Security Belt militias.

According to witnesses, the attack took place when militia members were at the main door to receive daily meals, which they would later distribute to their comrades at checkpoints both inside and outside the coastal Yemeni city.

Yemen has been devastated by a civil war between Houthi rebels, who currently control the capital Sana’a, and forces loyal to President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, who have been backed by a Saudi Arabia-led Arab coalition since 2015.

The UAE is a member of the coalition, but cracks in the alliance between the different UAE and Saudi-backed forces became a full-blown rupture in late January, leading to deadly fighting between the groups in the streets of Aden.

The ongoing Arab military intervention has destroyed much of the country’s infrastructure, leading to a widespread humanitarian crisis.

Terror organizations such as IS and al-Qaida took advantage of the war-torn conditions in Yemen, seizing strategic areas.
