Powerful explosions shook the Yemeni capital Sunday, witnesses said, after the Saudi-led coalition vowed to press its air war following a rebel missile strike that killed dozens of Gulf soldiers.The United Arab Emirates had pledged to quickly avenge its heaviest ever military loss after 45 of its soldiers were killed in Friday's missile attack, along with 10 Saudis and five Bahrainis.Coalition warplanes struck military bases on the Nahdain and Fajj Attan hills and the neighboring presidential complex, south of Sanaa, as well as a headquarters for special forces.Witnesses said Sunday's bombardment was one of the heaviest since the air campaign began.The Huthis said Friday's missile attack was "revenge" for six months of deadly air raids, but the coalition vowed there would be no let-up in its air war.The coalition launched the bombing campaign when President Hadi fled to Saudi Arabia in March after the rebels entered his last refuge, Aden.
