SANAA, Yemen, Saudi-led coalition launched three air strikes on the main civil airport north of Yemen's capital Sanaa, completely destroying the airport's air navigation system, the airport's spokesman, Mazin Ghanim said.
"The air navigation system was totally destroyed by the air strikes, and a technical engineering team is studying possibilities to provide the airport with an alternative system," Ghanim said.
"Now the airport is unable to receive UN aid-suppling planes," he added.
The coalition has forced the closure of Sanaa airport for more than a year now, but permitted United Nations aid-supplying planes.
Saudi's official media blamed its regional foe Iran for supporting the Yemeni rebels, with long-range ballistic missiles. Iran has denied the claim.
On Tuesday, Yemen's airline said, a commercial plane landed at Aden international airport, after acquiring permits from the Saudi-led coalition.
Tuesday's move, to ease the blockade came, three days after the coalition reopened Aden's seaport and Alwadiah land border crossing between Saudi Arabia and north-east Yemen, but the coalition has kept the Houthi-controlled northern ports shut.
