Sanaa, Yemen — Air strikes by the Saudi-led coalition left at least three civilians wounded in Yemen’s rebel-held capital Sanaa late Friday, witnesses said.

The strikes hit a residential area near the ministry of defense building, which had been targeted just before.

“I was sitting at home and heard the first strike hit the ministry of defence. Everyone was afraid. Minutes later, another strike hit my neighbour’s house,” resident Mohammed Aatif said.
