Warplanes from the United Arab Emirates have struck rebel targets across Yemen, a day after at least 60 soldiers from a Saudi-led coalition, most of them from the UAE, were killed in an attack in central Yemen.

Medical sources at hospitals in the capital Sanaa, which has been under effective control of the rebel Houthi militia for almost a year, said about 24 civilians were killed in the city as a result of the coalition’s attacks.

The UAE’s state news agency WAM said the UAE air force struck a mine-making plant in the Houthi-dominated Saada province in northern Yemen, as well as military camps and weapon stores in central Ibb province, causing “heavy damage”.

Apart from 45 Emiratis and five Bahrainis, Saudi state-run al-Ekhbariya TV reported on Saturday that 10 Saudi soldiers were also killed in Friday’s attack in Marib province, quoting Saudi military spokesman Brigadier-General Ahmed al-Asiri.
