A Houthi drone attacked a Yemeni government base and has reportedly killed at least six soldiers and injured several military personnel, including army chief of staff.

A Houthi-run TV channel said the attack targeted at the military bases in Lahj province on Thursday aimed at personnel from the Saudi-UAE led coalition backing the government.

Adding, the attack targeted “the leadership of the invaders”.

Based on an infographic on the Houthi’s official Telegram channel, there are claims that they possess five different drone models.

The attack took place a day after the UN envoy to Yemen said the conflicting parties are seeking a ceasefire, which was agreed upon last month around the Red Sea port of Hudaydah.
