Saudi-led Coalition Carries Out Series Of Airstrikes Against Houthis In Central Yemen

F-15 fighter jets of the Royal Saudi Air Force

On March 30, warplanes of the Saudi-led coalition carried out more than eight airstrikes on a large military camp of the Houthis in the Dawran Aness district of the central Dhamar province, according to the UAE-based al-Arabiya TV.

Al-Arabiya said that seventeen fighters of the Houthis had been killed and twenty others had been injured in the Saudi-led coalition airstrikes. Ismail al-Wshili, a prominent commander of the Houthis, was reportedly killed in the same airstrikes.

Moreover, Saudi-led coalition warplanes conducted a series of airstrikes against the Houthis in the Nihm district of the province of Sanaa, north of Dhamar province. Al-Arabiya said that the airstrikes had destroyed four vehicles belonging to the Houthis and killed several members of the group.

Local observers believe that the Saudi-led coalition’s airstrikes were a response to the Houthis missile attack, which targeted a key oil facility of the Saudi Aramco oil company on March 29.

Recently, the Houthis have stepped up their missiles attacks against Saudi Arabia. The Saudi-led coalition claims that support from Iran is the key reason behind the Houthis’ increased missile capabilities.

    Yes, I’m certain that the Houthis have well marked military bases. I wonder if the Saudis struck during parade while the Houthi soldiers were in tightly packed formations.

    Saker describes how the Serbs were able to evade US / NATO airstrikes for months. ISIS in their early days were also very good at being able to move around despite having multiple air forces targeting them.

      Houthis are better than ISIS in evading planes, Saudi Arabia and UAE only kill civilians, if they were actually killing marked military bases (Houthis don’t have them), they would be releasing videos like every-one else does. For instance Iraq’s ministry of defence used to release alot of videos of their aircraft slaughtering hundreds of Daeshis in a single go ever day on their youtube channel.

    Pity the Houthi’s don’t have long range SAM’s, because the American AWACS guiding the attack planes would be a more economical way of stopping the attacks.

      They do, and they’ve brought down multiple coalition aircrafts…as far as the US is concerned, they also shot down a M1-9 predator drone as well.

    I wonder why SouthFront shamelessly keeps on quoting al-Arabiya, which would have us believe for the last 3 years that Saudi Arabia and their allies are going to take over all of Yemen in weeks!
