The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen on Sunday night asked civilians in Yemeni ministries in the Houthi-controlled capital Sanaa to immediately evacuate, Reuters reported, citing Saudi state news agency SPA. The coalition said the Iran-backed Houthis use these headquarters to "launch hostile operations," and in response to the threat a site linked to the latest attack on Saudi Arabia's Abha international airport would be destroyed.

Hours later, the Saudi-led coalition destroyed a Houthi telecommunication system used to control drones, Saudi State TV reported. The bombing targeted a ground station for satellites in the vicinity of the telecommunication ministry in northern Sanaa, residents told Reuters. 12 people were injured at Abha airport by shrapnel from an explosive-laden drone intercepted by Saudi air defenses this past Thursday, the latest attack on Saudi Arabia by the Houthis.
