Arab-led coalition fighter jets bombed the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, on Friday leveling houses and killing at least 14 people, including eight members of a single family, relatives and witnesses said.The bombing was the latest in a significant escalation in the coalition's air campaign in Yemen. Wednesday, at least 41 people died when aircraft bombed a small hotel in the town of Arhab, north of Sanaa.Recently, the strikes in and around Sanaa, targeting army compounds and other locations of the Houthis have intensified. Over the past two years, more than 10,000 people have been killed and 3 million displaced amid the coalition's relentless air campaign against Yemen's Iran-backed Houthu rebels.The worst-hit house in Friday's attack in Fag Attan was a three-story building occupied by at least three families.
