Yemen: Saudi-led airstrikes target Houthi rebels controlled areas in al-Bayda
The Saudi-led Arab coalition launched a series of airstrikes on several areas controlled by the Houthi rebels in Yemen on Tuesday, a government official told Xinhua.
The airstrikes were launched in support of the pro-government Yemeni forces who are battling the Houthi rebels on the ground, according to the official who preferred to remain anonymous.
“More than 15 air raids were carried out against the Houthi-controlled sites in several villages of the central province of al-Bayda,” he said.
The pro-government Yemeni forces unleashed a large-scale operation against the Houthis in al-Bayda following the airstrikes, the official added.
