Storyline


The Yemen's government on Thursday released an investigation report, blaming the Houthi armed forces for the deadly missile attack of Aden's airport on December 30, 2020.

Yemen's Interior Minister Ibrahim Haydan told a press conference Thursday in Aden that, after a comprehensive investigation into the video footage, missile debris and the missiles' angle of attack, the investigation committee concluded that the three surface-to-surface missiles were launched by the Houthi armed forces.

The investigation committee was formed by Yemen's President Abdu-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

"The ballistic missiles targeted at the airport were fired from the Houthi-controlled area. We reached this conclusion based on an analysis of the angle of attack and the trajectory of the missiles. The accuracy and the destructive power of the missiles also leave no doubt that this is the kind of ballistic missile technology that only the Houthis group have in Yemen," said Haydan.

Haydan said that the first missile hit the VIP hall of the Aden International Airport and the second missile hit the No.1 landing slot 35 seconds later. The plane carrying the Yemen's new cabinet members was originally scheduled to land at the No.1 slot and changed its landing spot at the last minute to avoid the crowds at the pickup site, thus saving all the cabinet members on the plane.

On Dec. 30, 2020, the missiles struck the Aden International Airport, causing three huge explosions just minutes after a plane carrying the prime minister and other cabinet members of the new power-sharing government arrived from Saudi Arabia's capital of Riyadh.

The country's health authorities said 28 people were killed and 107 others were wounded, including international aid workers and media employees.

The Yemeni government immediately accused the Houthi rebels of planning and launching the attack and the group later strongly denied it.

The southern port city of Aden is considered Yemen's temporary capital, where the Saudi-backed Yemeni government has been based since 2015.

The impoverished Arab country has been locked in a civil war since late 2014, when the Houthi armed forces overran much of the country and seized all northern provinces, including capital Sanaa.
