Saudi-led airstrikes destroy air navigation system of Yemen's capital airport: spokesman

Yemen's capital airport
Saudi-led coalition launched three airstrikes on the main civil airport north of Yemen's capital Sanaa on Tuesday, completely destroying the airport's air navigation system, the airport's spokesman Mazin Ghanim told Xinhua.


"The air navigation system was totally destroyed by airstrikes, and a technical engineering team is studying possibilities to provide the airport with an alternative system," Ghanim said.

"Now the airport is unable to receive UN aid-suppling planes," he added.

Pictures obtained by Xinhua from the spokesman showed a large destruction at Sanaa international airport.

The coalition has forced the closure of Sanaa airport for more than a year now, but permitted United Nations aid-suppling planes.

The coalition of 10 Arab countries led by Saudi Arabia and backed by the United States intervened in Yemen's conflict in March 2015 to recapture territories including the capital Sanaa from Iran-aligned Yemeni Shiite Houthi rebels.
