Dubai: The Saudi-led coalition launched a military operation north of Yemen’s port city of Hodeidah against what it described as “legitimate military targets”, State-run Ekhbariya TV reported on Friday.

The coalition asked civilians to stay away from the sites targeted by the operation.

The coalition intervened in Yemen in March 2015 against the Iran-aligned Houthi group after they ousted the internationally recognized government in Sanaa in late 2014.
