            The attack happened in the province of Marib on Saturday at a mosque at a military camp. At least 80 Yemeni soldiers attending prayers at a mosque were killed and 130 others injured in ballistic missile and drone attacks by Iran-backed Houthi rebels. However, the attack did come, as several nations in the Middle East ready themselves for retaliatory attacks by Iranian-backed militias. Yemen has been in a yearslong civil war that has pitted a coalition backed by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates against the Iran-backed Houthi rebels. The Houthis did not make any immediate claim of responsibility.
