Heavy airstrikes by a Saudi-led coalition continued Friday in Yemen, while al-Qaeda made gains in the country’s east.

The Sunni Arab-led coalition carried out bombings in several cities, including the capital, Sana’a, the country’s second-largest city, Taiz, and the southern port city of Aden.

The coalition is targeting Shi’ite Houthi rebels, who are believed to be backed by Iran.

Al-Qaeda is capitalizing on the chaos to strengthen its stronghold in Yemen’s east. On Friday, al-Qaeda fighters overran a key army camp in the capital of Hadramawt province, Mukalla. Officials said they seized tanks, rocket launchers and small arms.
