At least 44 people have been killed in airstrikes by the Saudi-led military coalition in Yemen’s capital, Sana’a, according to the Houthi-run news agency Saba.

“More than 44 citizens were martyred and 100 others including women and children, according to preliminary figures,” the agency initially reported. Later figures from a Health Ministry official suggest there were at least 180 people wounded.

Among the dead there were at least 20 civilians, according to a medic working at the scene cited by AFP. Civilians from buildings near the strikes’ target also reportedly comprised most of those injured.

The attacks hit a Houthi rebel military headquarters. The Saudi-led military conducted four airstrikes in the early morning hours, and the casualty count was initially reported as much lower than the above figures.
