Daesh bomb attack hits UAE military kitchen in Yemen

The force of the blast damaged stores and cars nearby.

Witnesses said the blast was caused by a auto laden with explosives, apparently driven by a suicide bomber towards the kitchen in al-Derain area in northern Aden. Daesh claimed responsibility for the attack on the group's Amaq News Agency, which says more than 30 people were killed.

ISIL claimed the attack on its propaganda arm Amaq, saying an "act of martyrdom by auto bombing" had hit the "main headquarters for, food run by the Security Belt which is loyal to the United Arab Emirates, in the area of Dareen in the Mansoura district of Aden".

During the past two years, the al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and other terrorist groups including the IS have had an active presence in Yemen's southern part.

In 2015, Saudi Arabia and its Sunni-Arab allies launched a massive military campaign aimed at reversing Houthi gains and shoring up Yemen's pro-Saudi government.

The UAE has trained three security forces, including the "Security Belt Forces (also referred to as Al-Hizam Brigades) largely deployed in southwest Yemen; the Hadrami Elite Forces deployed in the governorate of the Hadramawt; and the Shabwani Elite Forces deployed to southern Shabwa", according to a 29-page counter-terrorism report published last month.

The government established its headquarters in Aden, Yemen's second city, after the rebels forced it out of the capital.

The impoverished Arab country has been mired in a civil war since the Iranian-backed Shiite Houthi rebels overran much of the country militarily and seized all northern provinces, including capital Sanaa, in 2014.
