Military Parade Explosion Kills At Least Six In Yemen

A rebel drone strike in Yemen left at least six people dead after detonating over a military parade for Saudi-led forces.

Yemeni Shiite rebels initiated the attack Thursday targeting military personnel at the Al-Anad Air Base near Aden.

Initial reports claim six soldiers were killed, and around 20 others were injured.

Around 8,000 soldiers were taking part in the parade at the time of the explosion.

This comes about one year after the Houthi rebels launched a campaign to use drone warfare and ballistic missiles, as the four-year civil war wages on.

The war began back in 2014 when rebel forces took over the capital, and in 2015 a Saudi-led coalition launched its military campaign officially entering the war.
