A massive explosion from an airstrike in Yemen’s capital left at least fifteen people dead and wounded dozens more on Monday, medical sources told Reuters.
The attack was the latest -- and strongest -- in a series of air strikes led by Saudi Arabia in the Sana’a area.
Saudi fighter planes bombed an area of Faj Attan mountain and targeted a military base that was housing scud missiles. The mountain sits near the Hadda district, which is home to embassies and the presidential palace.
The explosion at the missile base shattered windows and tore holes in buildings and cars.
According to Reuters, at least 15 people died in the blast. Al Jazeera reported more than 300 people were wounded.
One witness at a local hospital told Reuters victims with debris wounds crowded the emergency room.
Saudi-led strikes have been targeting areas where Houthi rebels have increased their power, including in suburbs of the capital.
Since January of 2014, Houthi rebels have moved south through Yemen. Their forces are now in cities from the northern Saada province to the southern area of Aden.
On Monday, witnesses reported hearing anti-aircraft artillery throughout the area following the explosion.
