  • 20 Houthi rebels killed in Saudi-led airstrikes in Yemen

    Published on January 31, 2019

    In Yemen, at least 20 Houthi rebels were killed overnight in Saudi-led airstrikes in northwestern province of Hajjah.

    Local media reported that the airstrikes targeted Houthi positions in Kashir district, a disputed area between the rebels and tribesmen loyal to the Saudi-backed government. A civilian was also killed in the airstrikes.

    Saudi Arabia has been leading an Arab military coalition that intervened in Yemen in 2015 to support the internationally-recognized government of the exiled President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

    The four-year war has killed more than 10,000 people, displacing nearly 3 million others. The war has also pushed the Yemen to the brink of famine.
