Journalist Nabil al-Qaiti and activists on social media who were present at the incident filmed the remnants of the explosion which was caused by a drone which targeted a celebratory event at Alanad Army airbase in Lahjj earlier this morning.

The incident happened at a military parade which was attended by high-rank military, local and government figures.
