SANAA, Aug. 24 (Xinhua) -- The Saudi-led coalition launched multiple airstrikes on military camps in the west of Yemen's capital Sanaa on Saturday, residents said.

The airstrikes targeted the Houthi-controlled camps in Attan mountain in the western edge of Sanaa. Houthi-run al-Masirah TV reported four airstrikes on Attan mountain.

There were no reports of casualties.

The coalition airstrikes came hours after the Houthis said they launched a drone attack toward King Khaled Air Base in southwestern Saudi Arabia. The Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television reported later that the Houthi drone was intercepted and destroyed.

Houthis have recently stepped up missile and drone attacks on Saudi Arabia, but most of the attacks were intercepted by the kingdom's air forces.

Saudi Arabia has been leading an Arab military coalition against Iran-allied Houthis in Yemen for more than four years in support of the exiled internationally-recognized government of Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
