Autobomba esplode nella città di Aden, attacco rivendicato dall’ISIS

MEDIO ORIENTE/SICUREZZA di

Un’autobomba è esplosa nel quartiere Al-Mansoura della città di Aden, in Yemen. L’attacco è stato rivendicato dalle forze dello Stato Islamico.

L’automobile esplosa nella città di Aden mirava a colpire un accampamento usato forze di sicurezza della coalizione Saudita avversa ai ribelli Houthi. Nell’attacco è stata danneggiata anche la moschea Zayen bin Sultan, situata nei pressi dell’accampamento.  A quanto riportato dai testimoni il numero dei morti sembra ammontare alla decina mentre non si hanno dati precisi sul numero dei feriti, tra sono presenti cui alcuni civili.

La dinamica dell’attacco non è del tutto chiara, in quanto lo Stato Islamico rivendicando l’accaduto ha rivelato che vi fosse un solo uomo, Abu Hajar al-Adani, nella macchina carica di esplosivi, i quali sono stati detonati a distanza. Mentre i testimoni locali hanno riportato la presenza di due uomini.

Dalla rivendicazione si evince anche che il vero bersaglio di Adani fosse la “Security Belt” fondata dagli Emirati Arabi Uniti, la quale doveva essere distrutta uccidendo e ferendo tutti coloro al suo interno. Gli Emirati Arabi Uniti sono un alleato chiave dell’Arabia Saudita che dal 2015 combatte contro i ribelli Houthi, che hanno fatto della città di Aden la loro capitale temporanea.

Questo inoltre non è il primo attacco che la città subisce, il 5 Novembre scorso un’autobomba esplose nei pressi di un posto di blocco, uccidendo 15 persone e ferendone altre 20. Anche in quel caso l’attacco fu rivendicato dalle forze dello Stato Islamico.
