SANAA (Sputnik) – An airstrike by a Saudi-led coalition against the Shiite Houthis killed over 30 people in the northwestern Yemeni province of Saada, a local source told Sputnik on Sunday.
"Coalition fighter jets conducted a series of strikes in the Gafira area, resulting in the deaths of 31 people and dozens injuries. Ten houses were completely destroyed," the unnamed source said.
The Saudi-led coalition carried out airstrikes on the southwestern province of Taiz earlier, including on a hospital near the strategic port of Mocha.
The Saudi-led coalition of Sunni Arab countries launched its campaign against the Houthi insurgency, at the request of Yemen's President-in-exile Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, in March 2015.
