Double attacks seen by Aden last week are obvious message on the main source of threat for political solutions in Yemen, the United Arab Emirates said Tuesday.

The double terrorist attacks on the Jala'a base and police center in Aden, and Houthi and Qaeda involvement, evidently indicate the source of essential threat for stability and political solutions in Yemen, the Emirati Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Anwar Gargash said.

Last Thursday, a missile-UAV double attack claimed by the Houthi group hit a military parade for Arab coalition and Yemeni army forces in Aden, seat of the Yemeni internationally-recognized government.

The attack killed 36 and injured other tens, including Muneer al-Yafeie (called AbilYamam), commander of the first brigade in the UAE-backed SB forces, according to interior ministry.

The attack occurred few minutes after a bobby-trapped car had exploded outside a police center in Sheikh Othman, another district of Aden, killing 13 policemen. On Friday,Daeshclaimed responsibility.

Amid "political debate and flood of accusations, the attack confirms the priority [should be given to] Houthi coup, extremism and terrorism," Gargash added.

Yemen has been racked by a 4-year bloody conflictbetween the internationally-recognized Yemeni government's forces, backed by a Saudi-led coalition, and the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels who ousted the government in 2014.

The conflict hastriggered what the UN calls the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with most of the population in need for a type of humanitarian aid and immediate protection, including 14 million people risking famine and some 1.8 million children suffering malnutrition.
