Saudi Arabia launches airstrikes on Houthi rebel camp in Sanaa


Aircraft of the Saudi-led military alliance that has been involved in the war in Yemen since 2015 bombed a Shiite rebel camp Houthi, believed to be close to Iran, in the Yemeni capital Sanaa, state television reported.

“Instant reaction”

“The operation in Sanaa is an immediate reaction after the destruction of a remote-controlled drone that had taken off for Jizan,” according to the same source.

Jizan, a city in western Saudi Arabia bordered by the Red Sea, has been repeatedly targeted by Houthis.

According to state television of the Sunni kingdom, seven drones and weapons depots were destroyed in the Shiite rebel camp. It was not immediately clear if there were any casualties.

Since late November, the Saudi-led military alliance has stepped up its airstrikes in the Yemeni capital, where it says it is hitting “legitimate” military targets.
