The Saudi-led coalition in Yemen launched an attack early in the morning, Saturday, on two targets in the capital, Sanaa, which is controlled by the “Ansar Allah” Houthi group.
“Reuters” agency quoted eyewitnesses and the spokesman for the Yemeni army supported by the coalition, Waddah Al-Dabish, that fighters launched nine air strikes on the Military Engineering Department camp in Sanaa and the headquarters of the National Security Agency.
The spokesman said that the coalition targeted a meeting of senior leaders of the “Ansar Allah” group in the camp.
In turn, the Houthi-affiliated Al Masirah TV said that 6 attacks targeted a military engineers’ camp on Saturday.
The Saudi-led coalition did not confirm an attack on Riyadh, but said it had intercepted and destroyed a number of ballistic missiles and drones bombed towards Saudi Arabia on Thursday.
The attack comes after the Houthis announced that they had attacked a “significant target” in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, on Thursday, using a ballistic missile and drones.
Since September last year, the coalition has reduced its bombing of the capital, Sanaa, after Riyadh started indirect talks with the Houthis.
The conflict since 2015 has led to what the United Nations describes as the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.
The Houthis took control of the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, and most of the cities in 2014, after the government of President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi was expelled from the capital, Sanaa.
