CAIRO: The Saudi-led coalition in Yemen struck Houthi targets in the capital Sanna, Saudi state TV Ekhbariya reported early today.

The coalition said the strikes targeted a Houthi drones manufacturing plant and a store containing launch pads. There were no immediate reports of any casualties or damage.

Saudi Arabia is leading a coalition that has been fighting the Iranian-aligned Houthi movement in neighbouring Yemen since March 2015, after the movement drove Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi into exile.
