Saudi-Led Coalition Strikes Houthi Security Camp In Yemen's Sanaa

12/23/2021

The Saudi-led coalition fighting Iran-aligned Houthi forces in Yemen said it launched air strikes against a Houthi security forces camp in the capital Sanaa.

The operation, which the coalition said destroyed seven drone and weapons stores at the camp, was in response to a drone the coalition said had been launched from Houthi territory towards Saudi's Red Sea city of Jizan.

The coalition has intensified attacks against targets in Sanaa in recent weeks, as Houthi forces continue to fire drones and missiles at Saudi Arabia.

The Yemeni capital is held by the Iran-aligned Houthi movement, which has been battling the coalition, which backs Yemen's internationally recognized government, for seven years.

Houthi-run Masirah TV said the strikes had hit the Sabaeen neighborhood of Sanaa in the early hours, damaging some civilian homes and causing some damage to a maternity and children's hospital.

During the conflict, which has killed tens of thousands and displaced millions, Houthi forces have regularly sent drones and fired missiles into Saudi Arabia, and the Saudi-led coalition has retaliated with air strikes inside Yemen.

The coalition said it carried out the operation in accordance with international humanitarian law.
