Saudi-Led Coalition Bombs communications Compound in Yemen’s Sanaa

The Saudi-led coalition fighting Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen destroyed a communications compound in the rebel-held capital Sanaa on Monday, it said in a statement.

The Saudi news agency SPA reported the coalition bombarded the “communication system” which was used to “operate drone control stations.”

The Ministry of Telecommunications and Information Technology was used by the Houthi rebels for “hostile operation”, the outlet added.

There is no immediate word over any possible casualties due the airstrikes.

Meanwhile, Yemen’s al-Masirah tv network reported that Saudi fighter jets conducted two raids against the compound which completely demolished it. The nearby buildings were also inflicted major damages in the strikes, it added.

Moreover, Mohammed Abdulsalam, Chief Negotiator of Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement, said the dialogue is the only way now to end the conflict as Saudi failed to achieve its “goal through a clear aggression.”

In a tweet, Abdulsalam said that eight years of aggression showed that nothing can be gained by force, calling on the conflict parties to incline toward peace through talks.
