At least nine people have been killed in western Yemen, despite a declared halt to the Saudi-led offensive that was meant to seize control of the strategic port city of Hodeidah.
According to Yemen’s al-Masirah television network, Saudi warplanes bombed a residential building in the district of Hali in the Red Sea city on Friday, killing three women and wounding three others.
The aerial attacks came hours after four Saudi airstrikes hit a village near the city, killing six people and injuring several others.
Meanwhile, the Saudi-backed militants launched artillery attacks on the residential buildings in the district of 7 Yulio (July) in the city, causing severe damage to houses and private property.
On Wednesday, Saudi-backed militiamen loyal to Yemen’s former President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi halted their offensive under international pressure for a ceasefire.
