SANAA, Aug. 19 (Xinhua) -- The Saudi-led coalition launched multiple airstrikes on military camps in the Houthi-held capital Sanaa on Monday night, just two days after a Houthi drone attack on a Saudi oil field.

The airstrikes targeted Houthi-run camps in Attan mountain, in the western edge of Sanaa, according to Sanaa residents and Houthi-run media.

There were no reports of casualties.

Meanwhile, the Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television reported a statement by the coalition, calling on Sanaa residents to stay away from Houthi military camps.

On Saturday, a Houthi-claimed bomb-laden drone attack caused "a minor fire in a gas plant in an oil field in eastern Saudi Arabia," according to the Saudi authorities.

Saudi Arabia has been leading an Arab military coalition against Iran-allied Houthis in Yemen for more than four years in support of the exiled internationally-recognized government of Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi. Enditem
