Yemen militias attack Aden TV station loyal to Hadi
The Aden TV building was ‘damaged but there were no casualties,’ an official at the government-run channel says
Yemeni militias fired mortar rounds Sunday at a television station loyal to President Abdrabbu Mansour Hadi in the southern city of Aden, forcing it off the air, an official said.
The Aden TV building was “damaged but there were no casualties,” the official at the government-run channel told AFP.
The attack came as battles raged between Houthis and pro-Hadi forces in the Aden districts of Mualla and Qalwa’a, leaving at least five civilians dead and 14 wounded, according to the city's health department director Al-Kheder Lassouar.
“There are children among the wounded,” he said.
The Iran-backed militias gained ground Sunday in Aden, which is among the last remaining footholds of Hadi supporters, even as a Riyadh-led coalition pounded their positions across Yemen.
Hadi took refuge in Aden after the Shiite Houthi militias seized power in the capital Sanaa in February, but he fled to Saudi Arabia last month as the rebels approached the port city.
