Houthi drones on Thursday at­tacked a Ye­meni govern­ment mil­i­tary pa­rade in La­haj prov­ince, killing sev­eral peo­ple, Saudi and Houthi me­dia re­ported.

The pa­rade was tak­ing place in­side a mil­i­tary base in al-Anad district when a loud ex­plo­sion rocked the area, eye­wit­nesses said, ad­ding high­ranked of­fi­cials in­clud­ing Ye­men’s deputy chief of staff were wounded in the at­tack.

A mil­i­tary source said the at­tack tar­geted the podium where of­fi­cials were sit­ting. - Reuters
