Two people at least were killed and more than five injured when a suicide bomber exploded his booby-trapped car in an area controlled by the Al Houthi rebels in Al Jawf province, local sources said Monday.
The suicide bomber was one of the two killed in the operations, the sources said.
The suicide bomber tried to drive his car to the health centre of Al Matamah district in Al Jawf which is under the control of Al Houthi Shiite rebels.
The car exploded as soon as the rebels tried to stop the car from entering the yard of the health center, the sources said.
The suicide bombing came only two days after a cease-fire and truce was reached between Al Houthi rebels and the Suni Islamists of the opposition party of Islah.
Hundred were killed and injured in the confrontations between the sides over the last few months.
Al Houthi rebels accused US of being behind the suicide attack. “It’s American conspiracy which targets Yemen and in particular the northern province,” said a statement issued by the office of the leader of Al Houthi rebels Abdul Malik Al Houthi.
