Saudi bombers destroyed cranes in a Yemeni port that were crucial for delivering food and other goods. Despite the fact that the U.S. paid to replace them, the American ambassador to Yemen opposed their delivery. https://t.co/uT8N09Uqur— The Intercept (@theintercept) 16 декабря 2017 г.
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.
