The Saudi-led coalition launched heavy airstrikes on Yemen’s main port city of Hodeidah on Friday, hitting a number of targets around the provincial capital.
The Saudi-led Coalition airstrikes were an apparent resumption of military operations on the Red Sea city after the Houthi forces attacked two Saudi oil tankers on Wednesday.
According to residents, coalition warplanes began their bombardment after midnight, attacking a Houthi military police camp in the city center, a plastics factory north of the city, and the districts of Zubaid and al-Tahita to the south.
The Houthi-run al-Masirah TV said in a series of tweets that coalition airstrikes had targeted a radio station inside the city and a fishing pier.
The UAE-backed Southern Resistance Army and their allies from the Yemeni Republican Guard halted their offensive in Hodeidah this month after several failed attempts to capture the provincial airport.
