ADEN, Yemen, Mar 14 (NNN-SABA) - The Daesh in Yemen, on Tuesday, claimed responsibility for the suicide attack on a security centre, and a military kitchen, in Yemen's southern port city of Aden.

In the deadly attack, in the neighbourhood of Mansourah, six soldiers were killed and more than 30 others injured, while they were gathering to receive their lunch meals, according to local sources.

Daesh media arm, A'maq, published a statement on Twitter, claiming responsibility for the attack.

Earlier in the day, Yemeni police confirmed that, a suicide bomber, riding an explosive-laden car, blew it up next to a building, used to store food and meals for the Yemeni forces in Aden, causing damage.

The southern port city of Aden is considered as Yemen's temporary capital and the Saudi-backed Yemeni government based itself there since 2015.

Saudi Arabia led an Arab military coalition that intervened in Yemen in 2015, to support the government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, after Iran-backed Houthi rebels forced him into exile.

The United Nations has listed Yemen as the nation of the world's number one humanitarian crisis, with seven million Yemenis on the brink of famine and cholera, causing more than 2,000 deaths.-- NNN-SABA
