Yemen Security Foils Planned Attack on Air Force Base

By Fakhri al-Arashi

Yemeni security has foiled terrorist explosive plans targeting the air force headquarters at al-Dhailami base near by Sana’a International Airport.  The attempt was unsuccessful tonight and it was hailed three days after the strong attack of the central jail in Sana’a last Thursday.

Three members were captured while they were trying to implement explosive materials similar to the former explosion of the prison and the Presidential mosque in 2011. An investigation is currently on going at a high portfolio. No further details have been given and no official sources have denied the news yet.
