The Saudi-led coalition carried out an airstrike on a pharmaceutical plant to the south of the Yemeni capital of Sanaa, a source in the security forces told Sputnik on Saturday.

SANAA (Sputnik) — The airstrike caused no injuries among the workers as it was carried out when the factory was closed, according to the source.

"Aircraft of the Arab coalition destroyed a pharmaceutical factory near Dabr Khaira [some 10 miles to the south of Sanaa]," the source said.

On Sunday, a bomb killed several health workers at a medical center supported by Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) in Yemen’s Razeh district in the Saada northern province.

Earlier this week, the Saudi-led coalition destroyed a hospital in the Swadi district of central Yemen’s Bayda province.

Yemen has been mired in a military conflict between opposition forces and the internationally-backed government, currently based in the country’s south, for over a year.

The Yemeni government is supported by a coalition of Arab countries led by Saudi Arabia who have been pounding rebel positions since the spring of 2015.
