At least 142 people were killed and hundreds more wounded after four suicide bomb attackers targeted mosques during Friday prayers in Yemen's capital, Al Arabiya reported. 
Daesh has claimed responsibility for the attacks, though the group's involvement in unconfirmed. The White House said there is no evidence linking the militants to the explosions, AP reported
The bombs detonated in al-Badr and al-Hashahush mosques in Sanaa. Both are known to be primarily attended by Houthi supporters.
The attacks come a day after President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi's palace in Aden was targeted with airstrikes. The country has been divided since Houthi fighters stormed Sanaa in September and later forced Hadi's administration to resign. The rebel group dissolved the parliament and took control of the government in February.
The international community continues to recognize Hadi as leader of Yemen and has refused to acknowledge Houthis. 
A top Houthi leader, Abdel-Karim al-Kheiwan was shot dead in Sanaa on Wednesday. Al-Qaeda has claimed responsibility for the assassination.

ISIS is the scum of hell. What can possibly stop these unholy terrorist attacks across the globe? I wish the world would rise up as a whole against this plague. No one can possibly condone these attacks and still call themselves human.
