A source of the Interior Ministry in Aden confirmed to Xinhua that the explosion was caused by a suicide vehicle bombing near a security center in Aden's neighborhood of Mansourah. Suicide bombers detonated two cars laden with explosives at the camp's entrance whilst up to six gunmen stormed the unit.
A number of ambulances rushed to the bombing site to send the injured people to nearby hospitals. Daesh claimed responsibility for the attack on the group's Amaq News Agency, which says more than 30 people were killed.
The UAE entered Yemen in 2015 as part of the Saudi-led coalition to assist the Yemeni government with threats posed by the Iranian-backed Houthi group which now controls the capital Sana'a.
But it also hosts jihadists of Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State group, who have both claimed attacks in the city in recent years.
In a post on Facebook, he said Yemen will plunge into a catastrophe unless President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi returns to the country from Saudi Arabia.
The government established its headquarters in Aden, Yemen's second city, after the rebels forced it out of the capital.
The United Nations has listed Yemen as the country of world's number one humanitarian crisis, with 7 million Yemenis on the brink of starvation and cholera causing more than 2,000 deaths.
