Saudi-led Coalition Warplanes Conduct Dozens Of Airstrikes On Sanaa, Despite U.S. Calls For Ceasefire

On November 1, Saudi-led coalition warplanes carried out more than 30 airstrikes on the al-Daylami airbase and several other positions around the Yemeni capital of Sanaa, according to the Yemeni al-Masirah TV. The airbase is located next to the vital Sanaa International Airport.

In its first comment on the airstrikes, the Saudi-led coalition said that its warplanes had  destroyed missile facilities and command centers of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) inside the al-Daylami airbase. The coalition also stressed that the airstrikes didn’t pose any risk to the humanitarian efforts and said that the Sanaa International Airport is still operating as usual.

According to the UAE-based al-Arabiya TV, the Saudi-led coalition will soon hold a press conference and share the details of these airstrikes and reveal the “violations” of the Houthis.

Two days ago, the U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called for a cessation of hostilities in Yemen. Later, U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis said that negotiations to end the war should begin within 30 days.

These intense airstrikes are likely an attempt by Saudi Arabia to score a point in the last minute before another ceasefire, especially that the Kingdom’s coalition has failed to make any significant military achievement since the beginning of this year.

    The 30 days is to give time to install the new Crown Prince and let him settle in to the former quarters of MbS. I think MbS life expectancy maybe about as long as he has left as Crown Prince- unless he has a final ace up his sleeve to have his life spared. But he made lot of enemies and I bet the US security guarantee did not extend to MbS.

    How can the Saudi’s continue their air strikes without the cooperation of the U.S. Air Force mid air refueling of the Saudi jets?
    More American double talk.
    Without America there would be very little war taking place in this world.

    Why would the Houthis have missile factories in Sanaa? Yemen is a large country with lots of lovely mountains. There must me many secure locations to keep production facilities that are at least a little out of the way of population centers.
