The military coalition led by the Saudi regime has conducted heavy airstrikes on the Yemeni city of Hudaydah, which has become a flash point where cluster bombs earlier dropped by the coalition warplanes killed one person and injured three others.
Residents said the airstrikes began in the early hours of Friday and targeted a police base in the city center and a plastics factory in the north of the city. The districts of Zubaid and Tahita, located in southern Hudaydah, were also bombarded.
Yemen’s al-Masirah TV channel said in a posting on its Twitter account that the warplanes had also attacked a radio station and a fishing pier.
"Coalition warplanes conducted two strikes on a fishing dock and market in Hudaydah, and the yard of the Hudaydah radio building, which was damaged by the shrapnel," one resident said.
There was no immediate report of possible casualties and the extent of damage inflicted in the airstrikes, which are seen as an apparent resumption of a campaign against Hudaydah after the coalition announced a pause earlier this month amid reports of stiff resistance from the Yemeni army.
