Arab coalition targets Houthi military camps in Sanaa

  • The raid included the Al-Dailami air base
  • The US blamed the Houthis for the hold-up to a UN-led peace deal

The Saudi-led Arab coalition targeted Houthi military camps in Sanaa on Saturday, Al-Arabiya TV reported on Saturday.

Eyewitnesses from the area said that the coalition air force targeted the Al-Dailami air base with three raids, two raids on Beit Atran and another camp in a different location.

This comes hours after the Houthis announced the fall of a coalition aircraft in the outskirts of Sanaa, according to media published by the Houthis.

The US ambassador to Yemen blamed the Iran-aligned Houthi movement on Thursday for the hold-up to a UN-led peace deal in the main port of Hodeidah and said Houthi weapons pose a threat to other countries in the region.

UN urges resolving fate of 2,500 foreign children at Syria camp

GENEVA: A senior United Nations relief official called on governments on Thursday to help resolve the fate of 2,500 foreign children being held among 75,000 people at Al-Hol camp in northeastern Syria after fleeing Daesh's last stronghold.
"Children should be treated first and foremost as victims. Any solutions must be decided on the basis of the best interest of the child," Panos Moumtzis, UN regional humanitarian coordinator for the Syria crisis, told a Geneva briefing.
Solutions must be found "irrespective of children's age, sex or any perceived family affiliation", he said.
