Arab coalition strike hits presidential office in Yemen’s Houthi-held capital
An air strike targeted the office of the presidency in Yemen's rebel-held capital Sanaa on Monday.
The strike came hours after Saudi Arabia's air defenses intercepted two ballistic missiles launched by the Houthis that targeted the south of the kingdom, coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Malki said.
He said the rockets were launched from northern Yemen toward "populated areas" of Saudi Arabia, but were intercepted overnight without any casualties or damage.
"This hostile act... proves the continued involvement of the Iranian regime in supporting the Huthi militia with qualitative capabilities," Malki added.
Since November of last year, the Iran-backed insurgents have intensified missile attacks into neighboring Saudi Arabia.
The Saudi-led coalition launched a military intervention in Yemen in 2015 with the goal of rolling back the Houthis and restoring the internationally-recognized government to power.
