Arab coalition fighters launched a series of air strikes on Saturday targeting the Houthi militia and forces loyal to ousted Ali Abdullah Saleh camps in southern Sanaa.

Local residents reported that violent raids targeted a camp in Atan where rocket launchers are based. A munitions depot and weapons stores were also struck in the Jabal Naqm district and the Nahdeen camp.

Intense raids and strikes continued in the skies of the capital Sana'a at the time of writing this article.

Sources confirmed that one of the raids targeted the headquarters of the Ministry of Defense under the control of the Houthi militias in central Sanaa.

The Houthi militia fired a ballistic missile targeting Riyadh on Saturday evening. The missile was intercepted by Saudi air defenses northeast of Riyadh near King Khalid International Airport and was destroyed without any collateral damage.
