CAIRO, Aug 30 (MENA) – Egypt has condemned the terrorist attack by Houthi militia on Al-Anad air base in Lahj province in southern Yemen.

In a statement issued on Monday, the Foreign Ministry decried the cowardly terror act, which left some Yemeni soldiers and officers dead and injured.

It extended heartfelt condolences to the victims' families and wished the wounded a speedy recovery, reiterating full solidarity with the Republic of Yemen in its war on terror.

Egypt also reaffirmed its full support of any actions taken by the Arab nation to ensure its security and stability.

At least 30 soldiers were killed and more than 65 others injured on Sunday after a ballistic missile followed by two explosives-laden drones struck a barracks housing about 50 troops at Al-Anad air base in Lahj province, 70 km north of Aden.
