Rebel-held Yemen base hit by Coalition

An airstrike by Saudi Arabia hits a site in the outskirts of Yemen’s capital Sana'a

Aviation at the airport and worldwide aid efforts are unaffected, Colonel Turki al-Malki said in a phone interview that was broadcast live.

On Friday, the coalition said it had attacked ballistic missile and drone sites at the worldwide airport of the Yemeni capital.

The United Nations has listed Yemen as the country with the world's biggest humanitarian crisis, with 7 million Yemenis on the brink of starvation and cholera causing more than 2,000 deaths.

On Friday, AFP news agency reported that fierce battle between forces loyal to Hadi and Houthi fighters near Hodeidah resulted in the death of at least 34 rebels and six pro-government troops.

Three-quarters of Yemen's 29 million people are food insecure, 1.8 children suffer from malnutrition and 400,000 children under age 5 are in the worst stage of malnutrition - without intervention they might die.

Geert Cappelaere, regional director for the Middle East and North Africa at United Nations children's agency Unicef, called on the warring parties to join proposed peace talks later this month and agree to a ceasefire.

Clashes broke out in a strategic Yemeni port city and airstrikes pummeled the country's capital Friday, as the USA -backed Saudi-led coalition launched a fresh offensive in the Middle East's poorest country, two days after an American call for a cease-fire.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Friday had called for a halt to violence to pull Yemen back from the "precipice". "Subsequently, coalition air strikes must cease in all populated areas in", Pompeo said in a statement.

According to the World Health Organization, almost 10,000 people have been killed in the conflict, though some rights groups estimate the toll could be five times higher.

The United Nations Children's Fund regional director said over the weekend that Yemeni authorities - both from the pro-government and rebel side - are making it "impossible" to deliver and distribute much-needed humanitarian aid to the country.

Houses and civilian properties were badly affected by the continuing Saudi-led airstrikes, said Masirah TV. The rebels were using the air base to launch attacks on the kingdom with drones and missiles, the spokesman, Col.

Other rights groups estimate the toll could be five times higher.
