Airstrikes target Yemen’s rebel-held Defense Ministry

SANAA – A series of airstrikes by the Saudi-led military coalition on Tuesday struck Yemen’s Defense Ministry building, which is under control of Shiite rebels who last year seized the capital, Sanaa, officials said.

The airstrikes also targeted the homes of military commanders allied with the rebels in the northwest Sanaa district of Hamdan, the officials added. A total of 121 coalition aircraft bombed eight other provinces, including sites near the Saudi border and Red Sea, killing dozens, they said.
