Saudi coalition launches bombing campaign on Sana’a in retaliation for Houthi attack on Abu Dhabi

A spokesman for the Arab Coalition for Yemen on Monday reported the start of a bombing campaign on Houthi positions in Sanaa, the capital of Yemen, in retaliation for the drone strike by Yemeni rebels in which they killed three people in Abu Dhabi on Monday, in the United Arab Emirates .

Coalition spokesman Turki al Malki said these airstrikes on Sanaa were “in response to the threat” and “escalation” of the Houthi “terrorists” and were aimed at “terrorist leaders” in the north of Yemen’s capital.

Al Malki has given assurances that air operations over Sana’a will continue 24 hours a day, urging civilians to stay away from Houthi militia camps and gathering places for their own safety.

Al Malki specifically reported a bombardment by “F-15 fighter jets that destroyed two ballistic missile launchers deployed Monday.”

“Those responsible for attacks on civilians in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates must be held accountable,” he said, describing these acts as “war crimes.”

Al Malki has described the Houthis attacking facilities at Abu Dhabi International Airport with three explosives-laden drones, revealing that they intercepted eight explosives-laden drones heading for “civilian targets” on Saudi territory.

“The Coalition Joint Forces Command will take all necessary measures to dissuade the Houthi militia from these hostile acts against civilians,” he assured, while insisting on Iran’s support for the Yemeni rebels.
