Early on September 13, the Saudi-led coalition carried out a new wave of airstrikes on Houthi military positions in the Yemeni capita, Sanaa, and its vicinity.
According to the UAE-based al-Arabiya TV, the airstrikes hit the following targets:
- Four drones at Al Dailami Air Base;
- A military research facility in the Weapons Maintenance Camp;
- A number of barracks and military posts in the districts of Bani Harith and Arhab;
- A headquarters in the al-Sawad Camp.
According to the pro-Houthis al-Masirah TV, at least two civilian workers were injured in one of the Saudi-led coalition airstrikes on Sanaa.
A day earlier, warplanes of the coalition carried out six airstrikes on the Military Engineering Complex near Sanaa. The Houthis were allegedly manufacturing and assembling ballistic missiles and suicide drones there.
The coalition airstrikes on Sanaa may be a response to the Houthis’ recent attack on “a high-value target” in the Saudi capital, Riyadh. The coalition claimed that the attack was foiled. However, the intense response to the attack suggests otherwise.
