Huge Fire Hits Gov’t Headquarters in Aden

A Huge fire broke out inside a hotel where the coalition-backed government is based in central Aden city, southern Yemen, on Thursday.

Sources familiar with the matter told Yemen press agency that the fire erupted inside Al-Qasr Hotel, west of Aden, noting that the authorities don’t issue any official clarifications about the reasons of the fire.

The sources added that the hotel has been closed since the targeting of the government of Maeen Abdul Malik by the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council militia upon its arrival at Aden Airport at the end of December 2020.

The sources indicated that the fire devoured large parts of the hotel, causing great material damage.

Activists on social media circulated pictures showing columns of smoke rising from the burning hotel heavily over the area.
