The Saudi-led military coalition fighting Yemen's Houthi rebels bombed the airport in the rebel-held capital, Sanaa, Tuesday, Yemeni officials said, although there were conflicting reports as to the extension of damage caused in the strike. The U.N. said most of the airport remained intact and that it would be able to receive aid shipments once they restart – after the coalition loosens the blockade of the war-torn country as it had announced.However, Yemeni officials in Sanaa, which is held by the Houthi rebels, said that the airports runway and a ground navigation tower were damaged. The coalition said Monday that it would reopen ports in areas held by allied forces and loosen restrictions it had raised after the firing of the missile, which was intercepted near Riyadh's international airport.The reported airstrike on Sanaa airport came as flights resumed to the airport in the government-held southern city of Aden, after the coalition granted permission for them to resume.
