Hindustan Times ST (Jaipur) - - World -


Ye­meni rebel of­fi­cials say an airstrike by the Saudi-led coali­tion tar­get­ing Shi­ite rebels has killed at least 17 peo­ple in the port-city of Hodei­dah. A spokesman for the Houthi-rebel-run Health Min­istry, Youssef al-Hadari, says that be­yond the 17 killed there were also 20 wounded in the Satur­day strike on the Ga­bal Ras area. Hodei­dah, with its key port in­stal­la­tions that bring UN hu­man­i­tar­ian aid, has be­come the cen­ter of Ye­men’s con­flict, with ground troops al­lied to the coali­tion strug­gling to drive out the rebels who con­trol it.
