Yemeni al-Hayad and al-Waqe’ al-Yemeni news websites reported that Ansarullah forces drove all the 40 Saudi embassy guards out of the mission and ordered them to surrender their weapons without any resistance, and they did.
The reports said Ansarullah took control of the Saudi embassy in Sana’a in reaction to the Saudis’ continued attacks on residential areas and hospitals alongside army positions in Yemen.
Saudi Jets Bombed Historic Imam Hadi Mosque :
Saud fighter jets bombed the Imam Hadi (AS) ancient mosque in Yemen’s Sa’ada governorate.
According to al-Mayadeen news network, the mosque was targeted in the early hours of Saturday.
Saudi warplanes also bombed the areas of Qamar and Saqayn in the northwestern province.
According to Yemen’s al-Masirah TV, four civilians were killed and over 10 others injured during the attacks.
Saudi rockets also struck the same areas.
Meantime, clashes between the popular Ansarullah and the Saudi-backed loyalists of the fugitive president continue in the Southern parts of the country as Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 66 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
On March 26, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies began to launch deadly air strikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to the fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
The Saudi-led coalition announced on April 21 that its military operation “Decisive Storm” has ended, but hours later, air strikes and ground fighting resumed.
The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 4,132 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
