Houthi drones on Thursday attacked a Yemeni government military parade in Lahaj province, killing several people, Saudi and Houthi media reported.

The parade was taking place inside a military base in al-Anad district when a loud explosion rocked the area, eyewitnesses said, adding high-ranked officials including Yemen's deputy chief of staff were wounded in the attack.Saudi-owned Al Arabiya TV said five were killed and several were injured. The Houthi's Al-Masirah TV said the attack targeted "the leadership of the invaders."



It was unclear if military officials were present from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, the two Gulf states leading a coalition that intervened in Yemen in 2015 to restore President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
