These photos, taken in the aftermath an airstrike against the Scud missile base at Faj Attan outside Sanaa, show large-scale destruction in a civilian neighborhood. A huge explosion injured many people inside their homes, while cars in queues at petrol stations, about 4 km away from the base were completely wrecked.

The base is under the control of pro-Houthi Yemeni army units. It has been targeted several times by airstrikes since the start of the Saudi-led campaign Decisive Storm.
