He also suggested that the death toll could further increase as some of the wounds are serious.

Moreover, Buhaibeh confirmed that this 'crime pushes everyone towards historic responsibility'.

It is worth mentioning that, a powerful explosion rocked the Aden Airport shortly after a plane carrying the new Yemeni government landed on Wednesday.

Maeen Abdulmalik, Yemeni Prime Minister (PM) said that his government will carry out its work despite all challenges and will not back down.

Abdulmalik stressed that “the terrorist act that targeted Aden airport is part of a war waged against the state,” according to the Al-Arabiya News website.

“We will continue our work until the Houthi coup is ended and the state is restored,” he added.

On his part, Yemen’s Minister of Information Muammar al-Eryani accused the Ansar Allah armed group [the Houthis] of carrying out this terrorist attack on Aden airport, which left many people killed and seriously injured.

“We reassure our great people that all members of the government are fine,” Al-Eryani said, affirming that “this cowardly terrorist attack will not deter us from carrying out our national duty.”

Notably, Yemen’s new unity government was sworn in, 4 days ago, following long months of violent clashes in southern provinces with Houthis.
