    The Daesh terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the Aden attack on an army recruits’, Arabic media reported Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Daesh terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the deadly attack on an army recruits’ camp in the Yemeni southern city of Aden, Arabic media reported Monday.

    Earlier in the day, an attacker on a car rammed into a group of recruits at the camp in northern Aden, which is the second largest city in the country.

    ​According to media reports, at least 60 people were killed and dozens injured in the attack.

    The Daesh, which is outlawed in many countries including Russia, is active in Yemen, which has been engulfed in a military conflict between the government and the Houthi opposition movement.
