The Islamic State (IS) group has claimed responsibility for a suicide vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (SVBIED) attack that occurred in the Dar Saad district of Aden on the morning (local time) of Friday, August 30. The target of the attack was a patrol manned by the Security Belt group, a wing of the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC). Six southern separatist fighters were killed in the bombing.

Similar IS attacks are possible in Aden over the coming weeks.


Yemen is engaged in a complex and deadly conflict, ongoing since Houthi rebels entered into a civil war with the Yemeni government, supported by a Saudi-led coalition, in 2015. The Saudi-led coalition has carried out thousands of airstrikes in Yemen since its intervention began. Hundreds of Yemeni civilians have been killed in the strikes, which have hit schools, hospitals, and markets, in addition to Houthi militant positions and personnel. In total, more than 10,000 Yemenis have died in the fighting and some 3 million have been displaced.


Due to poor security conditions, many Western governments advise their citizens against all travel to Yemen. Travel to the country should only be considered with proper security protocols in place. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
