30 Yemeni troops killed in strike blamed on Iran-backed rebels

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Strikes on Yemen’s largest airbase today killed at least 30 pro-government troops and wounded scores more, say medical and loyalist sources who blame Iran-backed Houthi rebels for the attack.

“More than 30 have been killed and at least 56 were injured,” armed forces spokesman Mohammed al-Naqib, who had earlier accused the Huthis of being behind the attack, tells AFP.

A military medic confirms the death toll after it jumped from seven fatalities earlier in the day.
