Arab warjets shell Houthi, Saleh militia posts in Sanaa
Sanaa - MENA
Arab Alliance planes shelled on Thursday posts of militias of Houthis and ousted president Ali Abdallah Saleh in Sanaa.
Yemen Press website said plumes of smoke drifted from camp 48 of presidential guards in southern Sanaa.
The attack comes after a two-month hiatus of Arab shelling of Sanaa posts.
Yemen has been entangled in civil war when Houthis and Saleh supporters attempted a coup against the internationally recognized Yemeni government of Abdrabbu Mansour Hadi.
Almost a year ago, Saudi Arabia led an Arab coalition forces to back Hadi and resistance forces.
For months now, a battle has been raging in Taiz, where the UN has accused Houthi fighters and their allies of blocking desperately needed humanitarian supplies to the town of 200,000. Meanwhile, Aden, the only area coalition forces have so far managed to “liberate” (in July last year), is beset by lawlessness. The conflict has spread across the entire country. Today, civilians are suffering in the fighting tearing Yemen apart.
Twenty of Yemen’s 22 governorates are precariously poised on the verge of devastating famine.
