Saudi strikes hit Yemen's capital city

6 December 2017

Heavy airstrikes by the Saudi-led coalition have rocked Yemen's capital, striking Sanaa's densely populated neighbourhoods in apparent retaliation for the killing of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh by the Shiite rebels who control the city.

Residents reported heavy bombing, and a UN official said at least 25 airstrikes hit the city over the past 24 hours. The Saudi-led coalition battling the rebels had thrown its support behind Saleh just hours before his death, as the longtime strongman's alliance with the rebels unravelled.

The UN Security Council has called on all sides to de-escalate the upsurge in violence and re-engage with UN political efforts to achieve a cease-fire without preconditions. The council called the deteriorating humanitarian situation 'dire,' saying Yemen 'stands at the brink of catastrophic famine.'
