DUBAI: More than 30 Houthi militants, including a commander, were killed by Arab coalition raids aimed at militia reinforcements coming from Imran to the Hajar Front in the province of Hajjah in north-west Yemen.

Coalition forces continued to supply Hajar tribes with food, medical, and logistical supplies, particularly in the besieged Qashar district of the Houthis.

The coalition aircraft carried out an air strike Wednesday night, the seventh since the start of the clashes.

Local sources said they had dropped quantities of aid, food and shelter materials for residents whose homes were damaged as a result of heavy shelling by militias on the villages of the area.
