  • Coalition strike 'kills dozens' of Houthi militants in new blow

Saudi-led coalition attack kills dozens of Houthi rebels in Sanaa, including two commanders, Saudi television reports.

The Houthis have confirmed that an overnight attack took place but gave no details on casualties.

Saudi state-run television offered the report early Saturday, saying more than 50 were killed.

The strike came hours before the Houthis staged a public funeral in Sanaa for Saleh al-Samad, a senior leader, who was killed on April 19 in an aerial attack claimed by the Saudis and their allies, this time in Yemen's coastal province of Hodeida.

Video footage from the funeral of a Houthi political leader shows agitated crowds, as a loud blast is heard, followed by the sight of black smoke billowing in the vicinity.

In a separate development on Saturday, Saudi air defences reportedly intercepted four missiles fired by Houthi rebels at Saudi's southern Jazan province near the border with Yemen.

The Houthis later said they fired eight ballistic missiles toward military and vital facilities in Saudi border city Jizan in retaliation for the air strikes that targeted the funeral ceremony and the interior ministry in Sanaa.

Tehran blames Saudi Arabia for the devastating Yemen war, which has left millions struggling to secure food.

Though, Saudi state media reported that the Saudi air defence forces had intercepted four missiles over Jizan, and said a Saudi citizen was killed from debris fallen from the missiles.

The coalition intervened in the Yemeni conflict in March 2015 to roll back the Iranian-allied Shiite Houthi rebels and support the internationally-recognized President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi. One person was reported killed by falling shrapnel in Riyadh last month.

Al Maliki accused Iran of standing behind the instability in Yemen through arming the Houthi rebels.

Yemen now stands at the brink of starvation.

The militia group has stepped up its missile attacks into Saudi Arabia following the death of two of its leaders as a result of a Saudi-led coalition airstrike.

The blockade has since been partially lifted, but access remains limited and the impoverished country stands on the brink of starvation.
