Saudi-led airstrikes hit Houthi-controlled camps in Yemeni capital after attack on UAE

Warplanes of the Saudi-led coalition launched multiple airstrikes on military camps controlled by the Houthi militia in Yemen’s capital Sanaa on Monday early morning, Houthi-run al-Masirah TV reported.

The airstrikes hit the Tabat Altelevision camp and Al-Daylami military airbase in northern Sanaa, as well as the Aletha’ah camp and the first division camp at the center of the capital, said the Houthi television without providing further details.

The explosions destroyed windows of nearby houses and shook buildings across the city.

The airstrikes came a few hours after the Houthis on Sunday claimed responsibility for a fresh ballistic missile attack against the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which the UAE’s Defense Ministry said it intercepted and destroyed.
That was the third Houthi cross-border missile attack in less than two weeks against the UAE, a key member of the Saudi-led Arab coalition backing the Yemeni army.

The previous attacks killed three people and hit an oil facility in Abu Dhabi.

The Iran-backed Yemeni Houthi militia has intensified cross-border missile attacks on the UAE and Saudi Arabia after it had lost several strategic districts in central Yemen this month.
