"The coalition aviation launched six consecutive strikes at Al Dilmi air base and Sanaa International Airport in the capital’s north," the source with the Sanaa-based Defense Ministry said.
Yemen has been locked in a civil war between its internationally-backed government and Houthi rebels for over three years.
Saudi Arabia has been involved in the conflict since March 2015. It is blamed for 10,000 of civilian casualties. Thousands have been forced to flee Yemen's main port city of Hodeidah since June after the coalition launch an offensive to capture it.
