    A military source reported that Saudi-led Arab coalition jets have struck the engineering college in the northern part of the Yemeni capital of Sanaa.

    SANAA (Sputnik) — Saudi-led Arab coalition jets have struck the engineering college in the northern part of the Yemeni capital of Sanaa, a military source told Sputnik.

    "The coalition's planes carried out a series of airstrikes at the military engineering college in the north of the capital…," the source said.

    Earlier, on Monday, at least 10 people, including a local judge and his family, were killed in a Saudi-led coalition airstrike on Sanaa.

    Yemen has been engulfed in a military conflict between the government and Houthi rebels, the country’s main opposition faction, for more than a year.

    Since March, a Saudi-led coalition has been conducting airstrikes against Houthi positions at the request of Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi.

    The coalition has repeatedly been accused of targeting civilians, as well as using banned munitions.

      Since Saudis have destroyed Yemen, the Houtis should be given all the Sunni areas of Saudi. Or the houtis should be given surface to surface missiles to destroy Saudi Sunni cities completely, so that these cities cannot be rebuild over a lifetime. It should be quid pro quo so that theAl Sauds learn a lesson not to interfere in another country. The motto should read ' send the al saud back to their camel days'.

      Saudi Arabia should remember that the wheels of justice is turning, slowly but surely, and their day of reckoning is coming -- nobody is escaping justice. Another one of the "cronies" of the U.S. stoking the fires of war -- how long will they get away with it??

      vendor, Many wants to do something about it but it will start WWWIII and nobody wants that on his conscious, which would be a huge cross to bear -- for starting the third and final war.
