The Saudi-led coalition fighting Houthi rebels in Yemen has launched two airstrikes on the capital, Sanaa, reports Al Arabiya (Dubai). 

The first strike on Wednesday hit a weapons depot south of the city. 

A second attack struck a warehouse holding similar weapons in the Qaa al-Zaidi area, which is also south of Sanaa. 

There were no immediate reports of casualties. 

Sanaa has remained firmly in the hands of the Houthi rebels throughout the conflict. 

The move comes as U.N. negotiator Martin Griffiths seeks to salvage an agreement reached in Sweden in December to halt fighting in the port city of Hodeidah. 

Talks are also underway to finalize a prisoner-swap deal, with an agreement expected in 10 days, reported Reuters.
