This comes even as Yemen is gripped in a military war between the government and the Shiite Ansar Allah movement, also known as Houthi rebels. The rebels have been supported by army units loyal to former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Meanwhile, a Saudi-led coalition has been carrying out airstrikes against the Rebels. The air strikes are being carried out since March, on the request of the current Yemen President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

The attack came as Muslims celebrated the feast of Eid al-Fitr which marks the end of the holy fasting month of Ramadan. The port city of Aden is under the control of government forces who are struggling to secure it more than a year after it was taken back from Houthi militia who have seized control of large parts of the country.

Yemen-based Al-Qaeda in the Arabian point has exploited the power vacuum created by civil conflict in the impoverished country to expand its presence in the south and southeast. Airport security guards, backed by Saudi-led warplanes were successful in neutralizing the attackers.
