Saudi jets target Yemeni capital’s airport

Saudi Arabian fighter jets have targeted the airport in Yemen’s capital Sana’a, worsening the already terrible humanitarian situation in the war-torn country.

According to Yemeni officials on Tuesday, the airport’s ground navigation tower and parts of its runway are damaged in the airstrike.

The UN has confirmed the attack, noting the damage resulting from the strike will not stop the arrival of aid shipments if the Saudis honor their promise of loosening the blockade.

Early this month, Saudi Arabia announced that it was shutting down Yemen’s air, sea, and land borders, after Yemeni fighters targeted an international airport near the Saudi capital with a cruise missile.
