Yemen: Exclusive: 120-year-old Shi’a Muslim mosque bombed by Saudi airforce

By Abdullah

Crater Aden, (The Muslim News): According to sources in Crater Aden in the District of Aden Governorate, few days ago, Saudi led air force bombed 120-year-old Shi’a Muslim mosque in the city. No one was killed or injured. However, the mosque was heavily damaged.

The Masjid al-Husayn belongs to the Khoja Shi’a Ithna’ashari Muslims whose ancestors came from India in the mid and late 19th Century to Yemen.

There were 750 Shi’as living in the city until very recently. However, due to the civil war, most have left the country and only a handful have stayed behind. This is the reason why there were no casualties in the air attacks.

This must be a mistake as Muslim Air Force can’t bomb mosques deliberately.

    Well brother,
    What about the previously planned assassination and kidnapping of Khoja Muslims on Aden, was it also by mistake?
    Stop supporting a country which is raising and promoting terrorism and hatred all over the globe!!
