At least 15 civilians, including one child, have been killed as the Saudi-led coalition resumed its airstrikes on the outskirts of Yemen’s port city of Hudaydah despite widespread international criticism over the war's impact on civilians.
According to reports by Yemeni media outlets, about 20 civilians were also injured during Wednesday's bombings that were launched after a brief truce since July.
The Saudi-backed forces also captured a number of towns as well as two main supply routes linking Hudaydah to the capital Sana’a and Ta'izz province, the reports added.
The bombings resumed after UN-brokered peace efforts failed in Geneva last week. The talks were aborted after the UN failed to meet conditions set by Yemeni rebels, including transfer of wounded people to hospital for proper treatment and guarantees on the safety of the Yemeni delegation.
