Saudi coalition bombs Yemen's Ministry of Communications in Sanaa
Yemeni official sources have said the Saudi-led coalition attack on the telecom company building in Sanaa caused severe damage to neighboring buildings.
The Saudi-led coalition bombed Monday Yemen's Ministry of Telecommunications and Information Technology in the country's capital, Sanaa, Al Mayadeen's correspondent quoted a Yemeni official source as saying.
According to Yemen's Al-Masirah television, the coalition fighter jets targeted the Ministry building twice, causing severe damage to the buildings adjacent to it.
In a statement, the coalition claimed it destroyed a communications system allegedly "used to operate drone control stations" and "launch hostile operations" located near the Telecommunications and Information Technology in Sanaa, as per the official Saudi news agency SPA.
In response, an official Yemeni source told Al Mayadeen that the Saudi-led coalition allegations are baseless, stressing that all government headquarters and ministries are open to citizens and local and foreign media.
The source clarified that the allegations are not new and are evidence of its confusion and defeat.
With its false allegations, the Saudi-led coalition paves the way for committing new massacres against Yemeni civilians and destroying other state institutions and government headquarters, the source pointed out.
For his part, the member of the Supreme Political Council in Yemen, Mohammad Ali Al-Houthi, tweeted "We are able to respond."
An AFP correspondent in Sanaa confirmed coalition airstrikes had targeted several areas of Sanaa around the Ministry.
It is noteworthy that in the past 24 hours, the Saudi-led coalition has violated the ceasefire agreement in Al-Hudaydah 233 times, in addition to bombing Saada Province, as well as the Harz area in the northwestern province of Hajjah.
