    A Saudi-led coalition has carried out more than 30 airstrikes in different areas in the north and west of Yemen, killing at least 10 people, a source in the Yemeni Defense Ministry told Sputnik on Monday.

    SANAA (Sputnik) — According to the source, five people were killed following the coalition's airstrike in the Saada province, another three were killed in Marib city and two in Al Maha.

    Yemen has been engulfed in a military conflict between the government headed by Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and Shiite Houthi rebels, who have been supported by army units loyal to former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

    Since late March, the Saudi-led coalition, comprising Arab countries, has been carrying out airstrikes against Houthi positions at Hadi's request.
