The air strikes were launched on Houthi targets in Sanaa, Hodeidah, and Amran, according to the Al Arabiya report.

The raids come a day after the Arab Coalition said it intercepted and destroyed an explosive-laden drone launched by the Iran-backed group towards Khamis Mushait in Saudi Arabia.

The Houthis continue to target civilians and civilian objects in Saudi Arabia and Yemen, the coalition said on Saturday.

An oil refinery in the Saudi Arabian capital Riyadh was targeted with a Houthi drone, causing a fire which was brought under control.

Services at the refinery returned to normal hours after the attack, the Chief Executive Officer of Saudi Aramco Amin Nasser said on Sunday.

The oil giant has adequate contingency plans to deal with any attack, he added.
