A bomb blast has killed four government troops in Yemen’s southwestern Taiz province, according to a pro-government commander.
A device planted by Houthi groups exploded as a military vehicle was passing on a road linking al-Mokha and al-Khawkhah districts in Taiz, Abd Rabbuh Bahisha said on Saturday.
He said the four soldiers aboard the vehicle were killed in the attack.
Yemen has remained gripped by violence and chaos since 2014 when Houthi groups overran much of the country, including capital Sanaa.
The conflict escalated in 2015 when Saudi Arabia and its Arab allies launched a devastating air campaign aimed at rolling back Houthi gains in Yemen and shoring up the country’s Saudi-backed government.
