Saudi-led coalition launches airstrikes on Houthis-controlled camps in Yemen's capital

 
Sanaa, Nov 19 (IANS) The Saudi-led coalition launched multiple airstrikes on military camps controlled by the Houthi militia in the Yemeni capital Sanaa, Houthi media channel has reported.

The airstrikes hit Dhahban and Al-Nahdayn camps in northern and southern Sanaa early on Thursday morning, the media channel said without providing further details.

The airstrikes came hours after the Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya TV reported that the coalition intercepted a bomb-laden drone aimed at Saudi Arabia's Abha International airport, Xinhua news agency reported.

The Iran-backed Houthi militia has recently intensified cross-border missile and drone attacks. In February, the Yemeni rebel group began a major offensive against the Saudi-backed government army to capture the oil-rich province of Marib in central Yemen.
