Sanaa, Yemen

The Saudi-led coalition carries on its bombing campaign in Yemen, striking a missile silo in Faj Atan just south of Sanaa. After the initial airstrike, widespread flames could be seen for over two hours and were accompanied by violent explosions as the military base continued to burn.

According to reports by the Saudi news channel Al-Arabiya, the Houthi-controlled depot contained ballistic missiles.

The Saudi-led campaign spokesman, Brigadier-General Ahmed Asiri, was quoted by Al-Jazeera on Monday 30 March as saying that coalition forces had also destroyed a ballistic missile as Houthi fighters tried to launch it.
