Massive explosion as air strike hits Scud missile factory in Yemen

It was a direct hit, the latest attack by Saudi-led warplanes on Houthi rebels and their facilities in Yemen.

Here, the target was a Scud missile factory in Sanaa. Terrified residents nearby were forced to flee.

Since late March, the Saudi-led coaltion has been attacking the Iran-allied Shi’ite Houthi rebels.

The campaign has repeatedly targeted the Faj Attan facility, along with other military bases and airports throughout the country.

Witnesses say at least seven civilians were killed and dozens wounded in this latest attack. Local hospitals are overwhelmed.

The blast also struck near many foreign embassies, including Indonesia’s.

Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi…

(SOUNDBITE) (Bahasa Indonesia) INDONESIAN FOREIGN MINISTER, RETNO MARSUDI, SAYING:

“Thank God there were no casualties, but two of the embassy staff and one Indonesian were injured.”

Back in Sanaa, the anger was mounting.

(SOUNDBITE)(Arabic) UNIDENTIFIED EYEWITNESS, SAYING:

“This projectile targeted houses. This is what the cowards used to bombard civilians.”

And more destruction to clean up in an increasingly bloody conflict that many fear could spread elsewhere in the Middle East.
