This past week, huge explosions shook a depot at the camp belonging to the military’s 25th Mechanized Brigade, which was recently moved from Abyan governorate to Hajja governorate’s Abs directorate.

The explosion reached and damaged a number of the brigade’s armories and was heard from many kilometers away.

The explosion caused stored missiles to fire into nearby districts, leaving ten people dead, seven injured, and a number of homes collapsed.

A similar explosion took place recently in Sana’a, at Ali Mohsen’s First Armored Division headquarters.
