On August 29, 2016, morning a powerful car suicide bombing was conducted by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, on an army camp in Aden, Yemen in which 72 people died and 67 wounded. The new military recruits were signing in a local government school, when the explosion took place. According to military sources, the recruitment was being done for new soldiers, for Yemen and Saudi led coalition army, needed for fighting the Huthi rebels, at the northern border with Saudi Arabia. ISIS claimed responsibility and referred to it as martyrdom operation. The bombing was another in a series of recent terrorist attacks, by Islamist militants, including Islamic State, in Yemen, especially on soldiers, public defense workers, and recruits, as a consequence of 18-month-old civil war between the Houthi movement and Hadi's supporters.
