ADEN, Yemen- The Saudi-led coalition, on Tuesday night, launched air strikes on a training camp of the Shiite Houthi rebels, in Yemen's Red Sea coastal city of Hodeidah, killing 150 of them, a pro-government military force reported.
The Houthis cordoned off the bombing site in Marouah, the pro-government Giant Brigades forces, said. Several vehicles were seen transporting Houthi casualties to different hospitals in Hodeidah, the statement added.
Houthi sources are yet not available for comment on the air strikes.
The Yemeni government is seeking to expel the Houthi rebels out of the strategic city of Hodeidah, in recent days, despite warnings by international humanitarian agencies.
The impoverished Arab country has been locked in a civil war, since the Iran-backed Shiite Houthi rebels overran much of the country militarily, and seized all northern provinces, including the capital, Sanaa, in 2014.
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 Houthi rebels forced him into exile.
The United Nations has listed Yemen as the country with the world's biggest humanitarian crisis, with seven million Yemenis on the brink of famine, and cholera causing more than 2,000 deaths.
