Al-Dailami military airpase in Sana'a

The Warplanes of the Saudi-led Arab coalition to support "legitimacy" in Yemen in the early hours of Wednesday targeted an air military base north of the capital, Sana'a, under the Houthis group (Ansar Allah).

The correspondent of "Debriefer" reported that the coalition warplanes launched two air raids on the military air base of Al-Dailami nearby the Sana'a International Airport.

He confirmed that sound of two powerful explosions throughout the city heard after an intense flight of the warplanes in its skies.

Coalition aircraft launched two raids on the Dilmi Air Base near Sanaa International Airport and heard two loud explosions around the city after a heavy flight of fighters in Samaya, the correspondent said.

The correspondent pointed out it was not clear whether there had been casualties from the two air raids.

The Houthi-run Al-Masirah TV confirmed that the two air strikes targeted Al-Dailami base.

There was no comment on the air raids by the Arab Coalition until the moment of writing this news.

Yemen has been battered by a five-year armed conflict between the internationally recognised government backed by the Saudi-led coalition and the Iran-backed Houthis. The Houthis have been controlling the capital Sana'a and large parts of most densely populated northern, middle and western regions since they ousted the government in late 2014.

Since the first day of the war in Yemen, Arab coalition warplanes have been targeting the Al-Dailami airbase north of Sana'a.

The coalition reiterates that it targets this military air base because the Houthis use it to launch and store ballistic missiles and marines targeting Saudi territory.

The conflict has caused what the United Nations calls the world's worst humanitarian crisis.

More than 24 million people, more than 80% of the country's population, are in need some form of humanitarian or protection assistance, including 8.4 million people who don't know where their next meal will come from, according to the UN.

And there are nearly 2 million children suffering from acute malnutrition, the UN said.
