Air raids hit Yemen’s Aden as rebels kill seven
Saudi- led coalition airstrikes hit rebel targets in Yemen’s main southern city of Aden on Wednesday after overnight attacks by anti- government forces killed seven people, military sources and medics said.
Coalition warplanes targeted rebel positions in Crater, Khor Maksar and other districts of Aden, which has seen heavy clashes between pro- and antigovernment fighters.
Residents told AFP the rebels “randomly” shelled residential areas in the city, killing at least three civilians.
The rebels also shot dead four armed supporters of President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi, medics and residents said.
In Daleh province, north of Aden, Hadi loyalists carried out several attacks that killed 16 rebels, according to pro-government militia sources.
It was not possible to independently verify the toll and the rebels rarely acknowledge their losses.
