At least 40 Houthi militants were killed in a car bombing Friday in Yemen's southern Shabwah province, SIA informs citing the AA.
"A booby-trapped car exploded at the Bejan police station in the province, killing 40 Houthis" the source told The Anadolu Agency.
The Houthi group has yet to comment on the attack, for which no group has claimed responsibility.
Fractious Yemen has remained in turmoil since last September, when the Shiite Houthi group overran capital Sanaa, from which they have sought to extend their influence to other parts of the country.
Since March 25, Saudi Arabia and several Arab allies have launched airstrikes against Houthi positions across Yemen.
The Houthis, for their part, have decried the Saudi-led offensive, which they describe as unwarranted "Saudi-American aggression" against Yemen.
Some Gulf States accuse Shiite Iran of supporting Yemen's Houthi insurgency.
