Saudi Arabia resumes airstrikes in Yemen

Source: CNN.com

(CNN)Saudi Arabia resumed airstrikes in Yemen on Wednesday, less than 24 hours after announcing the end of its "Operation Decisive Storm," a nearly month-long campaign against Houthi positions.

The strikes returned after rebel forces launched an attack on a government military brigade not under Houthi control, security sources in Taiz said. The brigade quickly fell to the rebels, they said.

It was unclear if the fighting represented a resumption of the operation or was a short-term resumption of hostilities.

When the Saudi-led coalition announced the end of the operation it said a new initiative was underway.

Operation Renewal of Hope will focus on the political process, it said.

1. Yes, it is quick.

They are calling it Operation Indecision this time. It's terrible that so many people are being killed.
