Saudi-led coalition strikes Yemen's Sanaa airport

The drone was launched from Sanaa international airport and was aimed at civilians at Saudi's King Abdullah airport in Jizan, Saudi media said.

Al Masirah TV, run by the Iran-aligned Houthi movement which has controlled northern Yemen since ousting the internationally recognized Yemeni government in Sanaa in late 2014, said the coalition air strikes hit a car maintenance workshop in the Bani al-Harith area north of Sanaa, and also damaged homes.

The coalition had said earlier it would conduct a military operation in the capital to destroy workshops and warehouses of drones and other weapons, urging civilians to avoid the area.
