Iranian MPs visit Yemenis injured in Sana’a terrorist attack

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Two Iranian lawmakers visited a number of Yemeni citizens injured in recent deadly bombings in Yemen’s Capital of Sana’a.

Mansour Haghighatpour and Seyed Hossein Naghavi visited in hospital the 52 Yemeni citizens who have been transferred to Iran to undergo medical treatment.

Some 500 people were injured in suicide attacks at two mosques in Sana’a on Friday. The bombings also killed at least 142 people.

A branch of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorist group in Yemen claimed responsibility for the bombings in an online statement, warning that the attacks were “just the tip of the iceberg.”

As well as transferring some of the injured to Tehran for treatment, Iran has sent 24 tons of medicine as well as a team of medical experts to the Yemeni capital, Soleiman Heydari, an Iranian health official in charge of treating the Yemeni victims told the Tasnim News Agency on Monday.

He added that among the wounded Yemenis, there are some with mutilation, fractures, damage to the eyes and burn injuries.
