Sanaa, July 20: A military coalition led by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Saudi Arabia on Saturday unleashed aerial raids over Yemen’s capital Sanaa.

Sanaa has been rocked by several powerful explosions following the Saudi-UAE coalition’s air raids, which is combating the nation’s Houthi rebels.

Moreover, the Houthis have also on Saturday claimed it carried out drone attacks over military targets at the King Khalid airbase situated in the southwestern region of Saudi Arabia.

According to Houthi rebel group spokesperson Yahya Sarei, the carried drone attacks had targeted military positions and radar at the airbase near Khamis Mushait city. However, no comments were fetched from the coalition over the rebel claim.

The UAE-Saudi aerial strikes in Sanna followed an aim of the coalition’s military operation at what it termed “legitimate” rebel targets in the war-torn nation, captured by Houthis since 2014.

According to the witnesses, they saw flames coming out from rebel military camps in several different regions of the city. However, no word over casualties has been heard yet.

“The alliance command is committed to preventing the terrorist Houthi militia and other terrorist organizations from having access to such military capabilities,” he added, according to Saudi Arabia state-run SPA news agency.
