Saada, Yemen
30 November 2023

Media reports claimed that an explosion in Sanaa was the result of airstrike against a Houthi weapons storage facility; Houthi officials asserted it occurred as a gas station. A Pentagon spokesperson said that “it was not a U.S. military that conducted that”, while an Israeli military spokesperson remarked: “Yemen and the Houthis keep the whole region busy, not just Israel… I can only comment on things related to the IDF, and I will not comment on what the IDF hasn’t done. There are other players in the area”.
