The Arab coalition fighting in Yemen launched several air raids on Houthi military sites on Sunday evening near Sanaa airport and Dulaimi base, sources confirmed to Al Arabiya.

The sources also said that the coalition raided Houthi militia positions west of the capital Sanaa earlier in the day.

On Sunday morning, the Arab coalition aircrafts launched raids on Houthi positions in a number of highlands south of Sanaa, including the hills of al-Rayyan overlooking Hadda city.

The air raids on Sunday come a day after the Arab coalition made a statement announcing its support for Yemeni uprising against Houthis.

The coalition said it is determined that it has maintained its position on all Yemeni ground.

The past three days have witnessed deadly clashes between supporters of former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh and his former Houthi militia allies. The fighting raged at dawn on Saturday between the two sides, which led to at least 80 supporters from both sides killed.
