Saudi Arabia and its Gulf Arab allies have carried out a third night of airstrikes on Sanaa, the capital of Yemen, to stem advances by Houthi rebels, Euronews reported on Sunday.

In his opening address at an Arab summit in Egypt, Yemen's President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi directly blamed Iran for “destroying” Yemen and creating “a regional crisis.”

Saudi Arabia’s navy evacuated dozens of diplomats from Yemen on Saturday and the United Nations pulled out its international staff.

Meanwhile, Yemeni President Abdu Rabbu Mansour Hadi has demanded that Houthi rebels surrender.

At an Arab Leaguesummit meeting in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, Hadi called on rebels to give up territory they took in recent offensives, and demanded that their leaders turn themselves over to government forces. He added that Saudi Arabia-led airstrikes against the rebels will continue until they stop fighting.

"Operation Decisive Storm will continue until all the goals are achieved, and the Yemeni people start enjoying security and stability," Hadi said, according to Al Jazeera.
