The military coalition warplanes led by the Saudi Arabia carried out a fifth straight night of air strikes against Yemeni people near the capital Sanaa and elsewhere in the country.

Fighter jets roared in the skies above Sanaa from 9:00 pm local time on Sunday night (1800 GMT) until around dawn.

The Saudi-led coalition has vowed to keep up the raids until the Yemeni political parties accept the resigned and outgoing President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi, who has fled to Riyadh.

The Yemeni army and Popular Committees are engaged in the resistance against the Saudi aggression.

In the area around Marib, 140 kilometers (90 miles) east of Sanaa, radar facilities and surface-to-air missile batteries were targeted, local officials said, after downing a hostile warplane that was bombarding the country.

In western Yemen, anti-aircraft defenses were targeted in the port city of Hodeida, as well as several military positions farther south along the coast, residents said.

A coalition of 10 countries, led by the Saudi Arabia, launched late Wednesday a wide military offensive on Yemen, killing 20 civilians, wounding scores others and causing so much destruction.

Media outlets reported that Saudi Arabia has deployed “100 fighter jets, 150,000 soldiers and other navy units” for the military campaign against Yemen. It also sent 5000 takfiri terrorists to fight against the Yemeni army.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is known for training and funding takfiri groups and sending them to the conflict-hit zones in the Arab and Muslim world, including Syria, Afghanistan and now in Yemen.
