New airstrikes hit Sana’a; Yemeni sources suspect Saudi Arabia

A series of airstrikes has been launched on the Yemeni capital Sana’a, Deutsche Presse Agentur (DPA) reported, citing local witnesses.

According to the witnesses, four airstrikes targeted the former headquarters of the First Armoured Division in the capital.

Witnesses added that several explosions were heard and smoke plumes were seen rising from the place, without details being known about casualties.

The airstrikes come at the same time as am Omani delegation is in talks with the Yemeni officials in Sana’a, in an attempt to move forward with peace-building and ceasefire steps.

Interestingly, the Saudi-led coalition denied its responsibility for the attack.

The coalition claimed that it has stopped carrying out attacks near Sana’a or any other Yemeni city because it wants to prepare the political ground for a peaceful settlement.

However, this was refuted by Yemeni reports stating the killing of one citizen and the wounding of three others in Saudi shelling on several border districts in Saada province, northern Yemen.
