Thousands of Yemenis in Funeral Procession for Senior Houthi Official in Sana

28 April 2018

Earlier on Saturday, Saudi media reported that several Houthi figures had been killed in an airstrike on Sana'a on Friday evening.

Saudi Arabia formed its military coalition in 2015 to battle the Huthi rebels in its southern neighbour and restore the internationally recognised Yemeni government to power.

The Saudi state-run news agency SPA reported that its air defense forces intercepted four of the missiles and no casualties or damages have occurred.

The attack appeared to be retaliation promised by Yemen's dominant political faction in a war there as thousands attended a funeral in the Houthi-run capital Sanaa for a top Houthi official killed in a Saudi-led air strike last week.

Mourinho also said there was "no chance" that keeper David de Gea would be allowed to leave the club in the close season. A win will guarantee the hosts qualification for next season's Champions League.

While the coalition statement said the attack claimed no casualties, Jizan's civil defence spokesman Colonel Yahya Abdullah al-Qahtani told Al-Arabiya that a Saudi Arabian citizen had been killed by falling shrapnel.

Coalition spokesman Col. Turki al-Maliki reiterated that the attack proves Iran's continued support to the Houthis in clear violation of United Nations resolutions.

The rebels have ramped up their missile attacks on Saudi Arabia this year.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is to travel on to the Middle East, visiting Saudi Arabia, Israel and Jordan, where the future of the Iran nuclear deal and the conflict in Syria will be significant agenda items, officials said.

. Saudi defence forces have also halted Yemen's financial aids and food and fuel imports as well. They see themselves as retaliating against heavy Saudi-led airstrikes in parts of Yemen.

Former Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh was killed in Sanaa after days of intense fighting between Houthi rebels and his loyalist forces on December 4 past year.

Rebels dressed in military fatigues marched ahead of his hearse, which included seven cars draped in the Yemeni flag and accompanied by a marching band.

Continued missile attacks from Houthi rebels in Yemen have forced Saudi Arabia to cut off air, sea and land links from its neighbour.

Almost 10,000 people have been killed since the Saudi-led alliance joined the Yemen conflict, triggering what the United Nations has called the world's worst humanitarian crisis.
