Yemeni presidential palace hit by Saudi-led airstrikes

Presidential Palace in Sanaa Yemen

Reported six dead and 30 wounded, but it is unclear whether there are among them representatives of the top of the Houthis.

"The Norwegian Refugee Council is appalled by Saudi-led coalition strikes on a highly-populated business district in Sana'a earlier today".

Yemen's Arabic-language al-Masirah television network, citing its correspondent in the scene, reported that Saudi fighter jets launched at least two airstrikes against the building, situated in the packed district of Tahrir, killing at least six civilians, including a child, and wounded 86 others, including school children. We abhor the ongoing use of violence to intimidate civilian populations under the guise of efforts to protect them. Following the strike, Yemeni forces vowed a "crushing response" to the United States and the Saudi-led coalition for killing the official.

The Presidential office is now being used by Houthi administration, which is normally bustling with employees.

"We were working next door to the presidential offices and heard a plane, and then an explosion", Ahmed Dehashir, a first responder, said at the scene of the attack.

"There are a lot of people trapped under the rubble".

Speaking of the military advances, Al Malki said: "The sound of artillery over the Houthi camps on the outskirts of Sadaa signals the time for the Yemeni people to welcome the National Army".

The coalition could not immediately be reached for comment.

His tweet in Arabic carried the hashtag #Houthi_Iranian_Terrorism and data released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs that said the Houthis in Yemen have launched 132 missiles and 66,298 projectiles towards Saudi Arabia. Since November 2017 Houthi Ansarullah movement has intensified missile attacks into Saudi Arabia.

The United Nations has listed Yemen as the world's number one humanitarian crisis, with seven million Yemenis on the brink of starvation and cholera causing more than 2,000 deaths.
