Saudi-led warplanes strike Yemen

Sanaa, Aug 29 (IANS) The Saudi-led coalition launched seven airstrikes against TV aerials and rocket depots controlled by Shiite Houthi rebels and their allied forces here on Saturday, military sources said.

The airstrikes at dawn destroyed aerials and transmission equipment of the state TV station in the southern part of the capital, Xinhua news agency reported.

Other air raids targeted missiles depots in al-Nahdayn mountain camp and its surrounding presidential palace south of Sanaa, sources said.

The houses of two military commanders who are relatives of rebel-allied former President Ali Abdullah Saleh were also hit during the airstrikes.

There were no words of casualties. The targeted locations were engulfed in flames as the explosions made residential quarters in downtown quake, according to the residents.

It’s the fourth straight day since the coalition started air bombing the capital on Wednesday after the rebels fired a ballistic missile toward an electricity station in the Saudi Arabia’s city of Jizan.

The Shiite armed group seized much of the country, including the capital Sanaa in last September, saying it was a revolution against corrupt officials loyal to Saudi Arabia and the United States.
