SANAA, Jan. 25 (Xinhua) -- The Saudi-led coalition in Yemen launched multiple airstrikes on a military camp controlled by the Houthi militia in the Yemeni capital on Tuesday midnight, Houthi-run al-Masirah TV reported.

It was the second consecutive day of airstrikes by the coalition that hit the al-Siyanah maintenance camp in central Sanaa, al-Masirah said without providing further details.

The explosions smashed windows of nearby houses and sent a fire which could be seen from downtown.

The airstrikes came after the militia claimed responsibility for explosive-laden drones and ballistic missile attacks on sites in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Monday morning.

This was the second of such cross-border attacks against Saudi Arabia and the UAE claimed by the Houthi militia in nearly a week.

The UAE is a key member of the Saudi-led Arab coalition that has been supporting the Yemeni government army against the Houthi militia since March 2015.

The Houthi militia has lost several strategic districts in the oil-rich provinces of Shabwa and Marib in central Yemen this month after deadly fighting against the Yemeni army.
