Saudi jets pound Sana’a international airport
Saudi warplanes have bombarded the international airport in Yemen’s capital, Sana’a, as Riyadh continues its deadly campaign against the impoverished southern neighbor.
Yemen’s al-Masirah news channel said on Thursday Saudi warplanes pounded the capital city airport three times. The bomber aircraft also targeted a military base in the Yemeni province of Omran.
On Wednesday, dozens of Saudi military forces were killed or injured in retaliatory missile attacks by Yemeni forces in the al-Amri district of Yemen’s southwestern province of Ta’izz.
In another development, Yemeni forces launched retaliatory missile attacks on the positions of Saudi-backed militants loyal to fugitive former Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi in the central province of Ma’rib, killing scores of them.
