At least eight civilians were killed and 20 wounded Monday in explosions sparked by Saudi-led air strikes on Yemeni capital, a medical source said.

Debris from the explosions fell as far as five kilometres away, triggering an exodus of residents for safer areas.

A previous Saudi air raid on the Mount Noqum base on May 12 sparked similar explosions that killed at least 69 civilians and wounded 250 others.

An April 21 raid on capital triggered explosions that killed 38 people and wounded 532.

Other air strikes on Monday hit Amran, north of Sanaa, as well as western Hodeidah province, residents said.

Saudi-led warplanes struck other positions in the southern province of Daleh, military and tribal sources said.

In the Saada, overnight coalition raids struck town of Marran, as well as in Ibb, farther south in central Yemen, witnesses said.
