Topic: Saudi-led strikes again hit Yemen overnight


By Sami Aboudi and Mohammed Mukhashaf ADEN (Reuters) - Air raids by a Saudi-led coalition again hit Houthi militia targets across Yemen on Monday night, striking the group's northern stronghold of Saadeh, the capital, Sanaa, and the central town of Yarim, residents and media said. "There were huge blazes in the mountains outside Sanaa. The strikes, which began on Thursday, are aimed at stopping the Houthis from taking more territory and pressing them and former president Ali Abdullah Saleh to negotiate a power-sharing deal with President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi. The Houthis are from a Yemeni Shi'ite sect and are allied to Iran, Saudi Arabia's main regional rival.

I think you will find some of it is the 110 drone strikes over the last few years.

Even if the civilian casualties have been light no one likes being bombed.
