President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi described the 'terrorist attack' on a mosque in Yemen’s military base in Marib province as ‘ugly.'
Hadi pointed out that the killing methods pursued by Houthi militias cannot be tolerated, and that they represent all the aspects of terrorism.
At least 34 civilians and military personnel were killed in a Houthi attack on the mosque during Friday prayers, local officials reported.
Houthi militias fired two Katyusha-type missiles at the mosque located inside the military camp of Kofal in the west of Marib, officials said.
Yemeni Minister of Endowments and Guidance Ahmad Attiyah said that the targeting of the mosque is considered a war crime and that the Houthi militias cannot justify the crime.
Houthi news agency Saba admitted to the militia carrying out the attack and bombing the mosque using heavy artillery.
This is not the first time Houthi militias have targeted mosques in Yemen causing massacres and bloodshed.
