    BEIRUT - The Saudi Air Force conducted intense air strikes on Friday in the Yemeni capital Sanaa and other populous cities in the country in regions controlled by Houthi rebels, considered close to Iran, said local sources cited by pan-Arab media. Houthi TV broadcaster al Masira said one person was killed in the air strikes on Sanaa and another was injured, in what is being described as a provisional toll.

    On Monday, the Houthis claimed responsibility for the launch of missiles on oil fields of the Saudi company Aramco in Jeddah, a Saudi city on the Red Sea.

    The sources said Friday's air strikes by the Saudi-led anti-Houthi Arab coalition took place in some neighbourhoods in Sanaa, in the region of Amran, north of the capital, and in the area of the contested port of Hudaydah, on the Red Sea. Videos and photos on social media show thick black smoke rising from neighbourhoods in Sanaa and the region of Amran.

    In recent hours, the Saudi government also accused the Houthis of having tried to attack commercial ships in the Red Sea.
