Saudi Arabia downs four Yemeni rebel missiles: coalition

A Saudi-led coalition air strike has killed dozens of Yemeni rebels including two commanders, state media said Saturday, in another blow to the insurgents following the assassination of their political chief.

The Houthi movement said it launched eight ballistic missiles toward the southern Saudi province of Jizan on Saturday, at what it called "economic and vital targets".

Tehran blames Saudi Arabia for the devastating Yemen war, which has seen millions struggle to secure food.

Saudi Arabia and its allies launched the war in March 2015 in support of Yemen's former Riyadh-friendly government and against the Houthi Ansarullah movement, which is now running state affairs.

Cohen represented him on 'crazy Stormy Daniels deal'
Even Daniels's attorney, Michael Avenatti , couldn't believe the development; he tweeted a thank-you to the Fox and Friends . A legitimate news organization would have asked Trump WHY Cohen was doing this work, but I think we all already know why.

The missiles were headed towards the city of Jazan in southern Saudi Arabia, according to the Arab Coalition statement, which was carried by the state-run Saudi Press Agency (SPA).

The Lebanese al-Mayadeen television channel reported a Saudi strike near the funeral ceremony but there were no immediate reports of possible casualties.

In the meantime, the rebel-run Al-Masirah TV says Saturday's missiles hit their targets with "excessive accuracy".

Saudi Arabia backs Yemen's internationally recognized government and aims to defeat the Iran-backed Houthis to restore the government to power.

That first version also caused the company to take a almost $40-million writedown in the third quarter due to excess inventory. Whether customers will take to Snapchat's new Spectacles more than the first-generation model, however, is anyone's guess.

Jizan civil defence spokesman Colonel Yahya Abdullah Al-Qahtani said on Arabiya TV that the Saudi man was killed by "falling fragments of military projectiles".

The Huthi rebels staged a public funeral on Saturday for Saleh al-Sammad, head of their Supreme Political Council and effectively the insurgents' second-in-command, who was killed last week in an air raid claimed by Saudi Arabia and its allies. The Shiite rebels generally known as Houthis didn't instantly acknowledge the strike.

Eyewitnesses and residents said that the airstrikes targeted other places such as Najda camp, the Dailmi air base, the presidential palace, Jabal al-Nahdeen and its militia camps and other nearby areas in Sanaa.
