AL-DHALEA, Yemen 

Yemen’s Houthi rebels fired rockets at a military graduation ceremony of a UAE-backed armed force on Sunday, killing and wounding many, according to information from local sources.

Iranian-backed Houthis reportedly hit the military graduation parade of Hizam al-Emni forces in the southern city of al-Dhalea, linking the southern, government-controlled port of Aden to Sanaa, the Houthi-controlled capital.

The sources said the attacks killed several and wounded many, but gave no firm numbers.

Yemen has been beset by violence and chaos since 2014 when Houthi rebels overran much of the country, including Sanaa.
