UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) – The victims of the airstrikes of the Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia on the building of the Yemeni oil company in Sanaa were five people, 12 more were injured, including women and children, told RIA on Saturday, a source in the security forces of Yemen.
“The coalition planes inflicted two air strikes on the building of the oil company on Sittin Street in the south of Sana’a, resulting in a fire in the building, five people died, including one woman, and 12 people, including children, were injured,” the spokesman said.
Earlier, the Arab coalition reported that Yemeni rebels from the Shiite movement Ansar Allah (Houthis) tried to attack the airport in the city of Abha in southern Saudi Arabia with the help of a drone, but it was destroyed. In response, according to the coalition, they struck at the positions of the rebels in the north of Yemen.
In Yemen, since 2014, a conflict continues between government forces and Shiite insurgent Houthis from the Ansar Allah movement, which seized the capital of the country, Sanu and a number of districts. On the side of the government is the Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia, which is why the territory of the kingdom is regularly subjected to attacks by the hussites.
