Saudi warplanes launch fresh airstrike on Sana’a Intl. Airport

Saudi Arabia continues pounding Yemen’s infrastructure. Fighter jets have attacked Sana’a International airport again.

This is the second Saudi attack on the airport in a week. Back on Tuesday, warplanes struck the airport’s runway to prevent an Iranian flight carrying relief aid from landing. Saudi jets continue to pound Yemeni cities. They launched air raids on Sabir region in Lahij province where the governor general’s house was targeted. A number of residential areas were also bombarded in Ta’izz and Aden. Earlier there were air strikes against an air defense camp in Hudaydah and an anti-aircraft battalion in Ma’rib province. Saudi artillery fire also hit the Yemeni border district of Dhahir in Sa’ada province. Nearly three-thousand people have been killed in the Saudi aggression since March 26.

Saudi planes airdrops weapons in Ta’izz

Saudi planes have airdropped weapons for members of the Salafist Islah Party in the southwestern Yemeni city of Ta’izz. Yemeni military forces say the arms and supplies were meant for militants in the Masbah and Ajenat neighborhoods. According to the sources, the operation was carried out in two phases over 6 regions on April 23. The airdropped wooden boxes contained sniper rifles, rockets and sophisticated communication instruments. This comes as Yemen’s Ansarullah fighters have been engaged in a fierce battle against the militants and the loyalists of fugitive former president Abd-Rabbuh Mansur Hadi for months, while being recently put under an arms embargo.
