Iranian state TV says an airstrike by the Saudi-led coalition has hit close to the Iranian Embassy in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, shattering windows but causing no casualties or injuries.

The report says Iran’s Foreign Ministry summoned the kingdom’s envoy to Tehran to protest over the bombing on Monday.

It quotes Iran’s deputy foreign minister, Hossein Amir Abdollahian, as warning the Saudis to abide by their international obligations and respect diplomatic missions. The report adds that Tehran holds Riyadh responsible for the safety of its mission in Sanaa.

Sanaa came under heavy bombardment on Monday as Saudi-led coalition warplanes targeted weapon caches held by Iranian-backed Shiite rebels known as the Houthis who have seized much of Yemen.

The Saudi air campaign in Yemen is now in its fourth week.
