Saudi warplanes bombed the Yemeni parliament building and a military academy in the capital Sanaa early Tuesday morning, al-Masirah Network reported.
Also late Monday, the Saudi warplanes launched ferocious air raids on Sanaa and other cities after the war-stricken country carried out successful retaliatory operations against strategic facilities in the United Arab Emirates, a key perpetrator in the protracted war on Yemen.
The Monday night air raids targeted Libby neighborhood in Maeen district of Sanaa, leaving at least 14 citizens martyred and 11 others injured, Yemen’s al-Masirah television reported.
“The successful operation was carried out with five ballistic missiles and a large number of drones,” the Yemeni Armed Forces spokesman declared, adding that “the operation had successfully achieved its objective.”
The attacks followed the Yemeni Armed Forces retaliatory operations that targeted the Emirati depth.
Three oil tankers in the Musaffah district in the UAE exploded, causing a large fire in the al-Musaffah area and parts of Abu Dhabi airport.
Yemen has been since March 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition, in a bid to restore control to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is Riyadh’s ally.
Tens of thousands of people have been killed and injured in the strikes launched by the coalition, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
The coalition, which includes in addition to Saudi Arabia and UAE: Bahrain, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Sudan and Kuwait, has been also imposing a harsh blockade against Yemenis.
