SANAA (Sputnik) — At least five people were killed, three others injured during Saudi-led airstrikes against Houthi rebels in a village north-east to Yemeni capital of Sanaa, a local source said Saturday.
"Only five bodies out of dozens killed have been identified so far," the source told Sputnik.
Due to the strikes, several houses in the village were completely destroyed, according to the source.
Yemen is engulfed in violent conflict between Houthi militias and the forces loyal to President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who fled the country in the wake of the hostilities.
On March 25, the Saudi Arabia-led coalition, comprising United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Jordan, Morocco, Sudan, Pakistan and Egypt, started conducting airstrikes against the Houthis at the request of Hadi.
