At least 15 Yemeni soldiers were killed and dozens others injured on Friday, including civilians, when an army barracks was targeted at the western entrance to the historic city of Shibam in Hadramawt.

The main attack was staged at the western entrance to Shibam, which is known as the “Manhattan of the Desert” and listed as a UNESCO world heritage site for its high-rise mud-brick buildings.

Local officials said fierce clashes broke out after militants exploded a roadside bomb targeting an army patrol, while a suicide bomber blew up a car at an army post near a residential area.
