SANAA - Saudi-led air strikes hit Yemen's capital Sanaa early on Friday, targeting weapons storage sites used by soldiers loyal to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh, a powerful supporter of Iranian-allied Houthi militias.

The air raids, which targeted parts of the Defense Ministry and other facilities lasted several hours, residents told Reuters by telephone.

"The sky was lit up," Sanaa resident Fadel Muhammad said. "We heard big explosions."

Houthi fighters who control the capital have also been trying to seize the southern city of Aden from local militias.
