At least seven children and two women were killed, when a Saudi-led air strike hit their home in Yemen's south-western province of Ibb, overnight, rescuers and residents said, early Saturday morning.

The air strike took place around midnight, killing an entire family and destroying their home. Rescuers and residents said that, it took them about one hour to pull out the bodies.

Dozens of adjacent houses were also damaged.

Separately, the Saudi-led coalition, launched seven air strikes overnight on the provinces of Saada, Hodaydah and Taiz, targeting Houthi fighters, according to residents and local officials. There were no immediate reports of casualties.

On Nov 23, a Saudi-led coalition air strike killed twelve Yemeni civilians and wounded six others, when they were travelling in a pickup car, towards a local public market in Hayran, in the north-western province of Hajja.

Saudi Arabia has been leading a mostly Arab military coalition, to intervene in the Yemeni conflict, since Mar 2015, via an air campaign.

The campaign attempts to restore power to expelled President, Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

Some 10,000 Yemenis have been killed, with three millions displaced.
