ADEN/SANAA, Saudi-led forces launched air strikes on Yemen's capital, described by one resident as the worst in a year, as the United Nations struggles to implement a peace deal.
A spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition said its warplanes on Sunday attacked seven military facilities used for drone operations in Sanaa, which is held by rival Houthi forces.
Yemen's nearly four-year-old civil war, which pits the Iran-aligned Houthi movement against the Saudi-backed government of Abd-Rabu Mansour Hadi, has killed tens of thousands and left millions on the brink of starvation.
Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television said the overnight targets included al-Dulaimi Air Base, a drone storage site, and military training sites.
Medical workers and residents said at least two civilians were killed, and others injured, and that the raids also damaged homes.
Houthi-run al-Masirah TV said on Sunday that the coalition had conducted 24 air strikes on Sanaa since Saturday evening, including four on the air base. It said a plastics factory was also hit, causing a large fire.
