At least nine people have been killed in a Saudi airstrike that targeted a home in the Saudi capital Riyadh, local media reported, citing local officials.
The Saudi-led coalition, which is battling the Iran-backed Houthi rebels, said in a statement on Tuesday that the attack targeted a house that was used as a “base of operations” for its troops.
The Saudi government did not immediately confirm the report.
The US has imposed sanctions on two Saudi officials, including Prince Bandar bin Sultan, who is currently Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the United States.
The kingdom has also banned US-based firms from doing business with the kingdom.US officials have said the attack came after Riyadh warned Washington against supporting “terrorist groups” in Yemen.
Washington has not ruled out supporting the Saudi-backed government in Yemen, but the Trump administration has warned against further arming the rebels, who have been waging an offensive against the government of President Abdu Rabu Mansour Hadi.
Hadi, a former general and the country’s last ruler, is backed by Iran and its ally, Saudi Arabia.
Washington’s move to back the Saudi intervention in Yemen has led to criticism from Gulf Arab states and regional powers who say the Trump-led administration is seeking to weaken their influence in the region.
The United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Egypt and Saudi Arabia have also expressed their opposition to the intervention.
