38 people were killed in a series of three bombings in Yemen that were carried out by militants of the “Islamic state” (banned in Russia), reports Reuters, citing medical sources in the security services. Another 24 people were injured.
The attack occurred in the town of Mukkala. ISIS has claimed responsibility for them through an information portal Amaq.
The first explosion happened when a militant detonated a suicide vest at a checkpoint on the approach to the city. Then near the headquarters of military intelligence blew up a car Laden with explosives. After that, an improvised explosive device — this happened before the military was going to start supper.
In addition to the conflict with ISIS, the Yemeni authorities are fighting with the Houthi rebels and other groups, including “al-Qaeda”. The last time the branch of ISIS in Yemen made a big attack at the end of may — then the explosion in the port city of Aden killed 40 recruits.
