6 killed in rebel attack in Yemen’s Mokha

Abu Dhabi: Six people, including four civilians, were killed in an attack by Yemeni rebels on a military base in the Red Sea coastal town of Mokha, medical sources said on Thursday.
The strike also damaged a hospital run by Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and forced its operations to be suspended.
The attack comes after weeks of relative calm in Yemen, which together with the signing of a peace deal between the government and southern separatists, had created a sliver of optimism over ending the years of conflict.
The Iran-backed rebels, who have been battling the internationally recognised government, launched four ballistic missiles and drones towards a military position in Mokha, a Yemeni military official told AFP. Medics said six people, including four civilians, were killed and 26 wounded. (AFP)
