A Saudi-led coalition launched air strikes on Iran-allied Houthi forces in Yemen's capital Sanaa, Saudi state television reported early on Saturday.
The strikes hit air-defence systems and other military positions in the Houthi-controlled city, days after the Houthis launched a missile attack on a Saudi airport, according to the TV report.
The Western-backed, coalition has been battling the Houthis in Yemen since 2015 to try to restore the internationally recognised government that was forced out of Sanaa by the Houthis.
Meanwhile, a leading rights group has called the recent drone attack by Houthis on an airport in Saudi Arabia an "apparent war crime."
Human Rights Watch urged the Houthis to stop attacks on civilian infrastructure in Saudi Arabia.
There was also some physical damage to the airport lounge.
