Shiite rebels in Yemen said Saudi warplanes have been using phosphorous against them. "Saudi combat fighter jets launched intense raids against border areas inside Yemeni territory on Sunday night," the rebels' spokesman Mohammad Abdessalam told AFP. "The Saudi military used phosphorus bombs during those night raids, burning mountainous regions," he said, adding that "the Saudi air raids resumed this morning (Monday). "


According to Abdessalam, the raids targeted Malaheez, seven kilometers inside Yemen, as well as the border villages of Hassameh and Shida and several villages around Jebel al-Dukhan.
