Cairo: A Saudi-led coalition today bombarded a military facility manned by Yemen’s Iran-aligned Al Houthi militia in the rebel-held capital of Sana’a, according to a media report.
The coalition jets mounted multiple strikes at dawn against the rebels’ military engineering complex in eastern Sana’a, Saudi television Al Arabia said.
The strikes targeted centres for making ballistic missiles and drones, it added, citing witnesses.
The attacks come after the Riyadh-based alliance has announced intercepting and destroying a series of explosive drones and missiles launched by Al Houthis targeting Saudi Arabia in recent weeks.
Al Houthis plunged Yemen into a civil war in late 2014 when they toppled the internationally recognised government and overran parts of the country including Sana’a.
In 2015, Saudi Arabia and the UAE initiated a military campaign in Yemen against the Al Houthis in response to a request from the government there.
