The sources confirmed that the girl died as a result of being hit by a fatal shrapnel in the head, while the wounded were taken to a hospital.
The explosion occurred after a number of Islah gunmen entered the restaurant to eat lunch, without injuring any of them, the sources added.
The number of terrorist bombings with improvised explosive devices increased with the UAE’s tendency to control the areas under the control of Islah in Al-Hujariyah and the city of Taiz.
