    CAIRO (Sputnik) - A strike by the Arab coalition fighting Houthis in Yemen killed 150 rebels near the port city of Hodeidah, a spokesman for the Saudi-led forces said Tuesday.

    The missile and bomb attack hit a Houthi training camp, Col. Turki Al-Malki said.

    The coalition of mostly Gulf Arab nations has been carrying airstrikes in Yemen in support of the country’s government since 2015.
