Strike hits presidential office in Yemen rebel-held capital: residents

Reports from Saudi media two weeks ago had it that the Houthis had captured 19 oil tankers and are keeping them from entering the Hodeidah port.

The Yemeni Houthi movement, also known as the Ansar Allah group, pledged Tuesday to respond to the airstrikes recently conducted by the Saudi-led coalition on the presidential office located in the capital of Sanaa, Abdulsalam Jabir, a representative of the movement, said.

Saudi warplanes carried out an attack against the Yemeni capital city of Sana'a today, attacking the presidential palace and leveling it to the ground.

A medical source said there were six people killed and at least 30 others wounded in Monday's attack, whose aftermath was witnessed by AFP reporters. "We tried to dig out the dead and wounded from under the debris, and then there was a second strike".

Monday's raids came hours after Riyadh said its military intercepted two ballistic missiles launched by Houthi rebels at southern Saudi Arabia Sunday.
