At Least 12 Killed In Explosion Near Yemen’s Aden Airport (Videos, Photos)

On October 30 afternoon, a large explosion rocked the entrance of the International Airport of the southern Yemeni port city of Aden, which is held by Saudi-backed forces.

Yemeni officials said that a small truck carrying petroleum products blew up at an outer gate to the airport. It is still not clear whether the incident was an attack, as suggested by several news sources.

An unmanned Yemeni official told the France-Press Agency, AFP, that twelve people were killed as a result of the explosion. Dozens others were reportedly wounded.

The situation in Aden city, the temporary home to the Saudi-backed Yemeni government, has been unstable to say the least.

On September 4, Major General Musa Mohsen al-Mashdali commander of Saudi-backed forces on al-Hazmiyah front in the central Yemeni province of al-Bayda was assassinated in the city.

Later on October 10, Agriculture Minister in the Saudi-backed Yemeni government, Salem al-Socotri, and the Governor of the southern Yemeni province of Aden, Ahmed Lamles, survived a bombing in the city center that left ten people dead or wounded.

The security situation in Aden city will not likely improve any time soon due to the never-ending tensions between the Saudi-backed Congregation for Reform, commonly known as al-Islah, and the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council. Both sides have much influence in the city.

No peace for saudi backed swine. Exactly as it should be for foreign imposters and proxies.

The turd mbs is soiling his zionist supplied adult diapers. A fool and degenerate that has yet to learn his place.

Reality bothers certain idiots. Understandable, especially from the snowflake generation.

Saudi Arabia is the real state sponsor of global Islamist terrorism, and it’s all hiding in plain sight, KSA is active at every level of the terror chain – planners to financiers, cadres to foot soldiers, ideologists to public cheerleaders.

Meanwhile, the KSA war against Yemen is an unwinnable clusterf*ck that the Saudi Prince-ling who launched it will not end because his sociopath ego is too big for him to admit his own failure. This is not the sort of individual that the west should be helping in a war. The inability to compromise or recognize a stalemate due to a colossal ego is a massive personal liability, The sort that continues getting people killed long past a rational point where the original strategic objectives cannot be won by continued aggression and an exit strategy is needed. The west continues to align itself to a massive liability.
