SANAA, Yemen- A Saudi Arabian-led coalition, fighting Iranian-allied Shiite Houthi rebels, killed five beekeepers in an air strike, on a bee yard in Yemen's Red Sea port city of Hodeidah, on Monday, a provincial hospital official said.
Meanwhile, pro-government media, almasdaronline.com, reported that, the five were killed while they were in their family's bee yard, in Dakwanah area, east of Salef port.
On Friday, a coalition air strike hit a house in Hodeidah, killing one and injuring three others, according to pro-government online news site, al-Hodeidah.net.
The Hodeidah port is a main entry point of about 70 percent of Yemen's food, medicines, aid and fuel.
The war has escalated in the port city, following the collapse of peacemaking efforts last month, by the UN in Geneva, after the Houthi rebels refused to attend.
Saudi Arabia is leading an Arab military coalition, that intervened in Yemen in 2015, to support the government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, after the Houthi rebels forced him into exile.
