Aden [Yemen], June 20 (ANI/Xinhua): Four newly-recruited Yemeni soldiers were killed and dozens others injured in a Houthi drone attack on a pro-government military base in Yemen's southeastern province of Hadramout on Saturday, a military official told Xinhua.

"A military base of the newly-recruited pro-government Yemeni forces located in Al-Wadiah border crossing point in Hadramout was bombed by Houthi drones, causing a huge explosion in the area," the local military source said on condition of anonymity.

"The targeted military base fully backed by Saudi Arabia was specifically used for training new pro-government Yemeni army recruits," he added.

The Houthi rebels based in the capital Sanaa haven't made any comments yet.

Yemen has been mired in a civil war since late 2014 when the Houthi militia seized control of several northern provinces and forced the internationally recognized government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi out of Sanaa.

The Saudi-led Arab coalition intervened in the Yemeni conflict in March 2015 to support Hadi's government. (ANI/Xinhua)
