Ten people were killed and wounded on Wednesday in air raids conducted by the Saudi-led coalition warplanes targeting a tanker in the western city of Hodeidah.

The US-backed coalition launched two air raids bombarding a tanker that had a number of workers on-board, resulting in the death and injury of more than 10 people and the considerable damage to the nearby shops.

According to local sources, the death toll is not final.

On Tuesday, 6 civilians, including 4 women, were killed by a Saudi American air strike on a passenger bus near al-Gharasi in the province.

These crimes came after the failure of the coalition to make progress in the West Coast Front as it has been suffering from hundreds of deaths and injuries among its ranks and the destruction of dozens of its vehicles and armored vehicles during the battles of the past days, a source expressed.

The coalition’s intention behind these crimes is to intimidate citizens in the coastal province of Hodeidah so that they can control it after the displacement of its population, the source added.
