BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 A.M.) – More than 26 people have been killed and dozens were injured after a Saudi-led airstrike hit a fishing port in Hodeidah on Thursday.

Graphic content reveals the aftermath of the attack, as children and adults were being transferred to near Al Thawra Hospital.

According to a doctor at Al Thawra Hospital many injured have been transferred to other hospitals and “there is a large number of deaths, and we cannot count now because the number is large, above the capacity of the hospital.”

The Saudi-led coalition has not yet confirmed that it was responsible for the air strike.

Saudi-backed Yemeni government forces launched an offensive earlier in June to take back the Houthi-controlled areas of Hajjah, Taiz and South Hodeidah.

The Saudi-led war in Yemen started in 2015 as an attempt to crush Houthi rebels in the region and reinstall former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

The port of Hodeidah is Yemen’s main point of entry for food aid. With 8.4 million Yemeni people forced to the brink of starvation according to UN figures, the country has been plunged into a severe humanitarian crisis amid its ongoing conflict.

This is NO air strike!
An aerial bomb would have left a serious crater, even “small” 225-250kg or 100-125kg ones do so (a 900-1000kg one makes a 30m diameter crater!) and even small 100-125kg ones make more damages than this.
What we do have here is obviously artillery shelling, period!
False flag for propaganda purposes?

Interesting :
“Saudi-led coalition spokesman al Maliki denied that any coalition warplanes conducted any operations in al Hudaydh today and blamed the strikes on the al Thawra Hospital and the fish market on al Houthi forces”
=> Seems to confirm my analysis.
