Saudi-led forces carried out air strikes Friday in Yemen's Saada province, a bastion of Iranian-allied Houthi rebels, and warned all civilians to leave a day after Riyadh promised a harsh response to cross-border Houthi attacks.Houthi mortar and rocket salvoes from Saada crashed into the Saudi city of Najran near the border Tuesday and Wednesday, killing eight people, and Houthi forces shelled a Saudi air defence site near Najran Thursday.The official Saudi news agency SPA said the air raids, which started late Thursday, hit four Houthi command-and-control centres, two in the Saada provincial town of Bani Maaz, and destroyed a mine factory in the ancient quarter of Saada city as well as a communications hub in the Mothalath area.Battles also continued between Houthi fighters and opposing militias in the city, with local sources saying 10 Houthis and five fighters were killed Thursday.
