‘One missile targeted the mosque’: More than 100 Yemeni soldiers killed in attack on camp | Middle East Eye20 Gennaio 2020
n army spokesman said that the dead included soldiers and civilians, and that the Houthis would face a “ruthless” retaliation to the strike.
Many of the soldiers at the camp had twice been relocated, first from Aden then from Shabwa, over the past six months.
Saudi-owned Al-Hadath television broadcast a video that it said showed the gruesome aftermath of Saturday’s attack.
Body parts could be seen on the floor among shredded debris. Blood is pooled on the carpet and spattered against the walls.
The attack follow months of relative calm in the war between the Houthis and Yemen’s internationally recognised government which is backed by a Saudi-led military coalition.
Missiles struck the mosque at the al-Nasr camp, located about 170km east of the capital Sanaa, during evening prayers.
