The Yemeni army and popular committees continued on Friday striking the Saudi-led mercenaries across the country, killing many of them.

Three suicide car bombings on Friday targeted checkpoints in Aden, according to security officials who added that  dozens were killed or injured.

ISIL later claimed responsibility for the bombings, according to AFP.

Yemen has been since March 26, 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.

Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians.

Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.

However, Yemeni army, backed by the committees has been engaged in battles with Saudi-led mercenaries and Hadi’s militias in several areas across the country.
