Air strikes by fighter jets from the Saudi-led coalition leave the main airport runways in the Yemeni capital Sanaa littered with burning jets. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Fighter jets from the Saudi-led coalition pounded Yemen's main airport runways in the capital Sanaa on Monday (May 4), witnesses said. A black cloud of smoke could be seen rising over the airport where Iran-allied Houthi rebels are stationed. The air strikes came just a day after coalition jets struck Sanaa's al Dulaimi military airbase, destroying the last remaining landing strips in the war-torn country. The Saudi-led coalition has been carrying out air strikes in Yemen since late March against the Houthis and their allies, whose rapid advances forced Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi and his government into exile in Riyadh. Saudi Arabia is trying to restore Hadi's government.
