An unprecedented attack on Yemen's government claimed by ISIS has raised a fresh challenge for the Saudi-led coalition backing the embattled president, analysts say.ISIS bombings Tuesday hit the government's temporary headquarters in the southern city of Aden and military installations used by the coalition which is fighting Shiite Houthi rebels, killing more than 15 people.ISIS, which controls swathes of Syria and northern Iraq, has previously carried out several deadly attacks and suicide bombings against the Houthis.But it had not targeted forces loyal to President Abed Rabbouh Mansour Hadi or Gulf troops deployed in Yemen as part of the coalition.Experts agree that the ISIS attacks further complicate the task facing the coalition, which despite seven months of air strikes and the deployment of thousands of troops on the ground has not managed to break the back of the rebels.
