As many as 61 Houthi fighters and pro-government forces were killed in the last 24 hours in the coastal city of Hudaydah in Yemen while dozens were wounded and rushed to hospitals outside the city; military and medical sources said yesterday.
Clashes between the Houthis and fighters affiliated to the internationally recognised government reached residential neighbourhoods in eastern Hudaydah, military sources said.
Officials in the pro-government forces said they “cleanse” residential areas east of the city from the Houthis.
On Friday night, pro-government forces took control of the city’s main hospital after expelling the Houthis from the area.
More than 400 fighters have been killed over the past ten days during confrontations in the city.
