The Saudi-led coalition has carried out 11 airstrikes at the Houthi rebels’ bases in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, according to the Houmi-run Sabah news agency.

Five of Sunday’s attacks hurt the area around Sanaa Airport, while others targeted the northern and central parts of the city, Sabah cited a security source.

It was not clear whether there were any casualties.

According to the Saudi-owned Al Arabiya media network, coalition forces attacked the Houthi barracks and military sites in Sana’a and destroyed four Houthi drones at the Al-Delmi airbase north of Sana’a.

There was no immediate official confirmation from the coalition, which carried out airstrikes on two sites in Sanaa a day earlier.

Claim of arms

A Houthi claimed after the attack that he used a ballistic missile and drone on an “important target” in the Saudi capital on Thursday.

The coalition did not confirm the attack on Riyadh, but said it intercepted and destroyed ballistic missiles and explosive drones launched toward the state on Thursday.

Bombing in Sanaa city has been relatively low since September 2019, when Saudi Arabia began indirect talks with the Iran-coalition Houthi movement, which has been at war since 2015.

The conflict has killed 100,000 people and is led by the United Nations as the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

The Houthis captured Sanaa and most other cities in 2014 following the removal of the Saudi-backed government of Abd-Rabbu Mansoor Hadi.

Saudi Arabia led the coalition in 2015 to try to bring Hadi back to power.
