UAE bombs camp of Saudi-backed mercenaries

The UAE air force has bombed a military camp belonging to the Islah party in Taiz province, southwestern Yemen.

This was reported by Yemen News Portal, based on local sources.

According to the sources, a large explosion was reportedly heard inside the Yafrs camp that funded by Islah leader leader Hammoud al-Mekhlafi.

Ambulances were seen rushing to the scene, and sources said the blast was caused by shelling done by a drone. Casualties have been reported, one of the sources confirmed.

The Hamad camp, located in the Yafrs area of Jabal Habashi district and set up by leader Hammoud Saeed al-Mekhlafi, includes fighters returned from the southern border of Saudi Arabia, with Turkish and Qatari funding to confront the joint forces led by pro-UAE commander Tariq Saleh and the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council.

The targeting came days after the Islah party summoned hundreds of its members to the camp for undisclosed reasons.
