Coalition launches air strikes targeting Houthi drone capabilities in Sanaa

Published: Updated:

Arab coalition planes launched air strikes on Houthi-held bases in order to target the militants’ drone capabilities during an operation in northwest Sanaa, Al Arabiya sources have confirmed.

Specifically, sources said the operation late on Saturday targeted several Houthi-held camps including one which was formally called the First Armored Division camp when it was held by the Yemeni army before the Houthis took over.

The al-Siyana, al-Hifa’a and the al-Nahdain military compounds as well as the al-Dailami air base were also targeted.

A coalition aircraft also launched two rockets towards the al-Hasba area north of the Yemeni capital.

The Arab Coalition fighting to support the legitimate Yemeni government said it took necessary measures to protect civilians during the operation in Sanaa and has asked them to stay away from the locations where militant sites were being bombed.
