Military experts believe coalition strikes aim to cut off Al Houthi reinforcements to Nehim
Fighter jets from the Saudi-led coalition on Sunday morning attacked military sites controlled by the Iran-backed Al Houthi movement in Sana’a as government forces battled rebels on the ground on different fronts.
Residents told Gulf News that fighter jets fired missiles at Al Daylami airbase near Sana’a airport and several other locations, setting off thunderous explosions that rocked the entire city.
The coalition has been extensively bombing Al Houthi military sites in Sana’a where ballistic missiles and ammunition are stored.Military experts believe by striking military camps and mountains in Sana’a, the coalition seeks to cut off arms supplies to troubled rebel fighters in Nehim, just outside of the Yemeni capital Sana’a.
The coalition has continued deploying heavy arms and tanks in Nehim’s rugged mountains to shore up government forces struggling to make a major
military breakthrough that could lead to recapturing Sana’a from the rebels.
