Saudi-led coalition airstrikes targeted Sanaa International Airport on Monday. The strikes hit a military cargo aircraft used by pro-Houthi forces to transport troops, food and supplies. The huge blaze was extinguished with water cannons. Initial reports state that no one was inside the plane when the airstrikes hit.

Since the Yemeni conflict broke out in March, it has taken the lives of more than 1,200 people, and caused over 300,000 to flee their homes.
