Saudi warplanes have bombarded the international airport in Yemen’s capital, Sana’a, as Riyadh continues its bombing campaign against its southern neighbor.
Yemen’s al-Masirah news channel said on Thursday Saudi warplanes pounded the capital city airport three times. The bomber aircraft also targeted a military base in the Yemeni province of Omran.
On Wednesday, dozens of Saudi military forces were killed or injured in retaliatory missile attacks by Iran-backed Houthi rebel forces in the al-Amri district of Yemen's southwestern province of Taizz.
In another development, Houthi rebels also launched retaliatory missile attacks on the positions of forces loyal to Saudi-backed president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi in the central province of Maarib.
