Saudi warplanes launched several airstrikes on Yemeni capital city of Sanaa, leaving at least one martyred and two others wounded, Press TV correspondent reported.

The casualties came after an army academy was targeted by the Saudi-led coalition’s warplanes. Reports say over a dozen sensitive targets including the presidential palace compound and a military base near Sanaa capital were pounded in the strikes.

The coalition’s airstrikes come two days after the Yemeni army backed by popular committees carried out retaliatory attacks on the Saudi capital Riyadh and the Kingdom’s southern city of Jizan.

Announcing the qualitative operation, Yemeni Armed Forces Spokesman Brigadier General Yehya Saree warned that as long as the siege and war against Yemen persist, army operations against the invaders would continue.

Yemeni army soldiers and their allies have carried out 5,278 retaliatory operations against designated strategic targets inside Saudi Arabia and elsewhere in the region, of which 1,686 offensives were mounted in 2019 alone.

Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the goal of bringing fugitive president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and crushing the Ansarullah revolutionary movement.

The UN said over 24 million Yemenis are in dire need of humanitarian aid, including 10 million suffering from extreme levels of hunger.

According to military experts, over five years after the Saudi invasion of Yemen, Yemeni army and Ansarullah fighters’ capabilities have strengthened significantly. Now with the fresh airstrikes on Yemen, experts say, more retaliatory attacks awaits Saudi Arabia.
