December 26, Saudi-led multinational coalition forces once again airstriked Sana’a’a, the capital of Yemen under the control of Houthis, firing three missiles at the residence of Yemeni President Hadi near the Air Force Aviation Academy in Sana’a.
Yemeni Houthis put Yemeni President Hadi under house arrest in Sana’a at the end of 2014, and then Hadi fled Sana’a and finally arrived in Saudi Arabia to ask for help from the Saudi government. In March 2015, Saudi Arabia and other countries launched a military operation code-named “Decisive Storm” against the Houthis, and the civil war in Yemen began.
Due to the large-scale attack launched by the Houthis forces on Malib, a strategic location and oil and gas-producing area in the centre controlled by the Saudi-led multinational coalition and Yemeni government forces this year, the multinational coalition launched another air strike against targets in the capital Sana’a’a city again in late November. At the same time, the multinational coalition has repeatedly accused the Houthis of using civilian facilities as cover for military purposes, so it has carried out air strikes on many civilian facilities and residential areas in Sana’a.
In recent days, the multinational coalition forces have carried out air strikes on targets in Sana’a every night.
