The UAE bombarded Yemeni rebels with airstrikes Saturday as it mourned 45 soldiers, among 50 killed in the deadliest day yet for a Saudi-led coalition fighting the insurgents.The UAE denounced the attack as "cowardly" but the Shiite Houthi rebels hailed it as "revenge" for six months of deadly coalition airstrikes.UAE troops have played a leading role in the operation and seven had already been killed in the fighting.UAE warplanes retaliated with pre-dawn bombing raids against the rebels in Marib and Sanaa as well as their stronghold of Saada in the far north and the central city of Ibb, state media reported.Coalition warplanes also bombed the rebel position from which the missile is believed to have been fired, a local official and witnesses said.Loyalist military sources said that the coalition had sent reinforcements to the Safer base this week, including tanks, armored vehicles, troop carriers, rocket launchers and Apache helicopters.
