Yemen as pro-govt forces push offensive against Houthi rebels

In Yemen fresh air strikes and clashes, have killed at least 65 fighters as Saudi-backed pro-government forces push an offensive against Huthi rebels.

Security sources said in Aden that Saudi-led coalition air raids on Sunday night killed at least 18 of the Iran-backed rebels in Hais, south of the key port of Hodeida, while bombardments from gunships left 35 others dead in nearby Tahita. The latest fighting killed 12 government troops and wounded 19 more, military sources said.

A Saudi-led coalition has been waging an air campaign against Yemen’s Huthi rebels since March 2015 in an attempt to shore up the internationally recognised government of President Abedrabbo Mansur Hadi.
