Saudi-led coalition launches airstrikes on Yemen’s main port Hodeidah

A Saudi-led coalition launched heavy airstrikes on Yemen’s main port city of Hodeidah on Friday. The strikes were an apparent resumption of military operations on the Red Sea city after the Iranian-aligned Houthi movement attacked two Saudi oil tankers, Reuters said. 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.
