SANAA – The Saudi-led coalition bombed the Yemeni capital Sanaa in the early hours of Saturday (July 4).

Air strikes began shortly after midnight local time in the early hours of Saturday and continued until around 4am local time.

The strikes targeted a military site just north of the capital controlled by the Shi’ite Houthi militias.
