Deadly Blast Hits AdenDeadly Blast Hits Aden

A bomb next to the governor’s office in the Yemeni city of Aden killed four people on Thursday, witnesses said.

No one claimed responsibility for the blast in the main southern port city of Aden, which is controlled by forces allied to Yemen’s exiled president Abd-Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, after they pushed back the Houthis last month, Reuters reported.

On Thursday, airstrikes by a Saudi-led coalition of Arab countries hit targets throughout northern Yemen, local officials said.

The attacks hit five provinces and the military airport in the capital Sana’a amid advances by pro-Hadi troops against Houthi forces.

The attacks came on the heels of air raids by Saudi warplanes on Yemen’s Red Sea port of Hudaydah on Tuesday, which officials there said had destroyed cranes and warehouses in the main entry point for aid supplies to the north of the country.

EU called on all parties to the conflict to refrain from deliberately targeting civilian infrastructure.

On Tuesday, Saudi air raids on a school in Amran Province killed 13 teachers and four children, in an attack the United Nations called “senseless bloodshed.”

“No nation, no society, can afford to lose its children to conflict,” UNICEF said in a statement.
