Saudi-led coalition fighter jets bombard Sanaa stadium

TEHRAN, Dec. 24 (MNA) – Saudi coalition warplanes struck various areas in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, on Friday morning, including al-Thawra Stadium in the north of the city.

Lebanese Al-Mayadeen news network quoted its correspondent in the Yemeni capital as saying that horrific explosions were heard in northern Sanaa. According to the report, Saudi-led coalition fighter jets bombed al-Thawra Stadium three times.

According to the report, Saudi jets also bombed and destroyed Al-Zubairi Street south of the Yemeni capital. Yemeni sources have confirmed that civilians were injured in the attack.

Prior to the attack on Al-Thawra Stadium, Yemeni Ansarullah rejected the Saudi coalition's claim that there were weapons depots at Al-Thawra Stadium and called on the media to go to the stadium and film it to reveal the aggressors' lies.

A coalition led by Saudi Arabia has waged a devastating war against impoverished Yemen along with a total blockade since April 2015 to allegedly restore power to ousted Yemeni President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi, who has fled from the country to Saudi Arabia.

Yemeni government led by the Ansralullah movement has said that it will retaliate against the recent Saudi aggression with painful strikes.
