Saudi-led air strikes hit Yemeni capital, ending lull

April 26 (Reuters) - At least five air strikes hit military sites and an area near the presidential palace compound in the Yemeni capital Sanaa at dawn on Sunday, residents said.

The bombings were the first raids on the city since a Saudi-led alliance said last week it was scaling back a campaign against Iranian-allied Houthi militias, which control Sanaa and have powerful allies in Yemen’s factionalised armed forces.
