    On December, 16 a Saudi-led coalition launched airstrikes against the Houthi movement, also known as Ansar Allah, in western Yemen, a military source told Sputnik Saturday.

    SANAA (Sputnik) — The airstrike targeting a village in the Al Khokha district of the Al Hudaydah province, where the country’s second largest port is located, killed more than 20 people, a source has told Sputnik.

    The Saudi-led coalition conducted nine more airstrikes in other regions of the province, including the Hays district, where the clashes between Houthis and the government forces were unfolding, the source added.

    For several years, Yemen has been engulfed in a violent conflict between the government headed by President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and the Houthi movement. Since early December, the situation in the country has worsened, as clashes between the Houthis and Saleh’s loyalists in Sanaa resulted in the end of the alliance between the ex-leader and the rebels.
