Senior Yemeni Military Officers Survived Houthi Missile Attack

ADEN, Sept 26 (NNN-YPA) – A celebration gathering, which was held in Yemen’s northern province of Hajjah and attended by some senior military officers from the Yemeni government, was hit by missiles yesterday, a government official said.

The official, who prefers to be anonymous, said, a torch-lighting ceremony was held in the Midi district of Hajjah province, to celebrate the upcoming Sept Revolution Day, when four missiles landed in and around the site.

The senior military officers, along with dozens of civilians, left the site just minutes before it was hit by the missiles, the official said, adding, the attack caused no casualties.

The official accused the Houthi group of launching the missiles, calling it an “apparent plan to assassinate government military officers and other local leaders.”

The Houthi group, which controls large swathes of northern Yemen, made no comments regarding the missile attack.

Yemen marks Sept Revolution Day on Sept 26 (today) each year, to commemorate the overthrow of the Imam Muhammad al-Badr, on this day in 1962, which led to the establishment of the Yemen Arab Republic.
