Saudi-led air strikes on Yemen’s Red Sea coast have killed at least 29 rebels over the past 24 hours, military sources said today.

The strikes hit two military camps, an ammunition depot and an arms transporter in Hodeida province, the sources said. Around 20 fighters and renegade troops were also wounded.

The Saudi-led coalition intervened in Yemen in March 2015 in support of beleaguered President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi.
