At least 86 Yemeni people have lost their lives in the latest wave of air raids conducted by Saudi warplanes on the port city of Hudaydah, a lifeline for millions of people.
AFP cited military and medical sources as saying on Tuesday that the Saudi aerial assaults had pounded an area close to the Hudaydah port, two farms and two training camps for the Houthi Ansarullah movement in the past 48 hours.
Rescue personnel and medical sources said the airstrikes had killed 79 Houthi fighters and seven civilians.
Saudi Arabia and its allies launched a brutal war against Yemen in March 2015 in an attempt to reinstall the former Riyadh-allied regime. The Houthi movement, backed by allied Yemeni armed forces, have been defending the country against the Saudi-led aggression.
Back in June, the Saudi-led coalition launched the Hudaydah offensive despite international warnings that it would compound the war-torn nation’s humanitarian crisis.
