Yemen’s official news agency says two missiles fired by Houthi rebels struck a mosque in an army camp, killing 22 troops and wounding several others, like reported by ap.org.
The SABA agency, under the control of the internationally recognized government, says the attack took place during Friday prayers in the Marib province, east of the rebel-held capital. It says the death toll is expected to rise.
The government, which is heavily backed by a Saudi-led coalition, is battling the Houthis and military units loyal to a former president.
The war in Yemen has killed more than 10,000 civilians and pushed the Arab world’s poorest nation to the brink of famine.
