Saudi-led coalition says destroyed Yemen rebel missile launch sites

Saudi-led coalition says destroyed Yemen rebel missile launch sitesA military coalition led by Saudi Arabia said Sunday it had destroyed sites used by Huthi rebels in neighbouring Yemen to launch missiles at the kingdom. The coalition announced in a statement the “destruction over the past 24 hours of ballistic missile (launch) sites run by the Huthi militias in Saada”, a northern Yemeni province bordering Saudi Arabia and controlled by the Huthis. Riyadh and its allies are fighting alongside Yemen’s government against the Iran-backed Huthis in a war that has killed thousands and pushed impoverished Yemen to the brink of famine.
