SANAA, 31 December, 2020, (TON): Yemen's Houthi militia said on Thursday that the Saudi-led coalition launched multiple airstrikes on Houthi military sites around the Yemeni capital Sanaa.

Houthi-run al-Masirah TV said the airstrikes on Thursday morning targeted the military sites in the districts of Sanhan and Bani Hushaish.

The coalition has made no comment yet.

The airstrikes came a day after the coalition and the Yemeni government blamed the Houthi militia for the attack on the international airport in the Yemeni southern port city of Aden, which the Houthis denied.

Yemen’s civil war began in 2014 when Shiite rebels “Houthi” with links to Iran took control of Yemen’s capital Sana.

The Saudi-led Arab coalition intervened in the Yemeni conflict in 2015 to support Hadi's government. The Saudi-led coalition has continued to wage its campaign against Iranian-backed Houthi rebels, resulting in heavy civilian casualties.
