BEIRUT, April 5. /TASS/. Saudi Arabia’s aviation has resumed air strikes at Yemen’s capital Sanaa, Al-Mayadeen TV channel said on Sunday.
Powerful explosions are heard throughout the city, Al-Mayadeen said. Air strikes were delivered at military warehouses in Jebel Nukum, a college, a Republican Guard camp, military police headquarters in the east of the city and a base of engineering troops.
Several strikes were delivered at an international airport. They were met with barrage fire from Houthi rebels, supporters of the Ansar Allah movement
Reports said civilians were among the victims of the air strikes. Al-Mayadeen said 11 civilians died and 7 more were injured on Saturday.
On March 31, UN evacuated its personnel from Yemen for security concerns. Russia started evacuating its nationals from the country as well. Several countries, including Germany, the United States, Turkey and Japan, suspended operation at their respective embassies in Yemen.
Since August 2014, Yemen has been hit by a severe political and security crisis. In late January, the armed groups of Ansar Allah (Houthi rebels) forced the president and the government to announce resignation.
The rebels later took control of the country’s capital and several northern provinces. They also announced the adoption of the so-called constitutional declaration.
Overnight to March 26, Saudi Arabia launched a military operation in the neighboring country and delivered air strikes at several Houthi positions.
Pro-government forces regained control of the Aden airport last week, while Yemeni President Abd Rabbah Mansur Hadi fled the country to Saudi Arabia. The coalition is currently considering launching a ground operation in Yemen to oust Houthis.
