At least seven dead in an attack on Aden airport in Yemen

At least seven people died and several others were injured in a bomb attack on the main entrance to Aden Airport, the seat of the Yemeni government recognized by the international community.

The attack was carried out with a car bomb that was detonated in the Jor Maskar district in front of the main entrance to the airport, reported the Yemeni news portal South24, citing sources from the security forces.

The bomb was detonated in a densely populated neighborhood, so most of the victims are civilians, including a minor, although there are also military victims.

A source at Aden Airport has stated that the detonation occurred approximately 500 meters from the airport entrance and coincided with the arrival of a passenger flight.

The war in Yemen hits the internationally recognized government led by Abdo Rabbu Mansur Hadi and backed by an international coalition backed by Saudi Arabia and the Houthis, backed by Iran.

The rebels control the capital Sana’a and other areas in the north and west of the country. In recent months, despite international mediation efforts on several fronts, the conflict has escalated into a war that has caused the world’s largest humanitarian crisis.
