SANAA, Yemen, Four powerful Saudi-led coalition air strikes, hit Yemen's rebel-held capital, Sanaa, at midnight on Saturday, residents said.

The successive strikes shook the ground of the entire city, where children's cry could be heard amid explosions.

According to Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television, the coalition air strikes targeted the Houthi military positions, in the south and north-west of Sanaa.

There was neither comment yet, from the Houthis, on the coalition's air attacks, nor reports on the casualties.

Hours earlier, the Houthi al-Masirah TV said, it will release a video, showing a captured "sick Saudi soldier prisoner" demanding the Saudi government's help to release him.

Saturday's air strikes were the second coalition's attack on Sanaa in a month, after air strikes on Dec, 19 last year that targeted the rebel-held military air base north of the capital.

Saudi Arabia has been leading an Arab military coalition in Yemen, against the Houthi militia since Mar, 2015, in order to reinstate the exiled government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
