Several other nations, including Bahrain, Qatar and Egypt, are participating. The Gulf nations claim the campaign is a response to a request of Yemen's ousted president, said to be in hiding outside of the country.
As many as 65 people have died in the attacks, a source told Sputnik earlier Thursday.
The Shiite Houthis, Yemen's main opposition force, have taken over large areas of the country including the capital Sanaa. The group forced President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and his government to resign late January, subsequently dissolving the parliament and declaring a presidential council.
