Yemen airport bombed to foil Iranian plane

A fresh blast crater in the runway has closed Sanaa’s airport.

Saudi Arabia says its jets bombed the runway and planes on the tarmac Tuesday to stop an Iranian plane from landing.

Saudi Arabia backs President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi while Iran backs Shi’ite Houthi rebels.

The sides have been fighting for control of Yemen months with more than a thousand killed in recent weeks.

One airport official, showing the damage to visiting Houthis, says another airport was also hit, complicating humanitarian efforts to fly aid into the country….aid that is badly needed.
