Report informs referring the information given by theSputnuk News, on Wednesday, Saudi Arabia-led coalition which includes Bahrain, Qatar and Egypt launched airstrikes against Houthi rebel positions in Yemen following a request by Hadi.

The United States is not participating in the military operation, but agreed to provide logistical and intelligence support.
