Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL) claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing attack in Yemen on Aug. 29 that left more than 60 people dead.
Dozens more were wounded after a terrorist drove a car packed with explosives into an army facility in the southern coast city of Aden.
The attack targeted a gathering of new recruits for Yemen’s security forces.
Aden has served as Yemen’s capital and main base of operations during the ongoing battle with Iran-backed Houthi rebels. The Houthis control the capital Sanaa.
“It’s a massacre,” Yemen Post editor Hakim Al Masmari said of the Aug. 29 bombing. “The attack has the highest death toll in any attack that happened in Aden before.”
