Sanaa, Yemen: Yemeni branch of the Islamic State has claimed responsibility for two bombings in a northern district of Sanaa, the capital of Yemen.

ISISThe bombs that killed 28 people and wounded another 78, were exploded at Houthis controlled al-Mo’ayyad mosque which is located al-Jarraf neighborhood of Sanaa, according to a report in Economic Times.

The details of the blast have been broadcasted by the Houthi-controlled Saba news agency which said that the first blast was due to a suicide bomber and the second was due to a car bomb. The suicide bomber exploded inside the mosque and consequently, the car bomb exploded outside the mosque that targeted the medics.

Houthis are Shi’ite Muslims and hence are aligned with Iran. Therefore, IS that follows Salafism of Sunni Islam considers them as heretics.

Yemen is witnessing a civil war for last many months. Last year, Houthis seized control of the capital Sanaa from the Saudi-backed government. In March, the war escalated when Saudi-led Arab states intervened to take back control from the Houthis and re-instate the Saudi-backed government.
