Ramadan Death Count wash up: Yemen: 15/06/18

(Hodeida)  On the last day of Ramadan, Saudi Forces have taken the airport from the Iranian backed Houthi rebels.  Opening up their advance with a huge artillery and air bombing campaign, the coalition inflicted huge losses on the Houthi rebels who made the huge mistake of thinking that fighting on flat open plains is exactly the same as fighting in their mountainous redoubts , which is why over 280 of them were killed yesterday trying to defend the airport.

Saudi sappers are now clearing the airport area of mines ,bobby traps and IEDs, whilst their forces march onto the city centre , just 2 kilometres away. 

Ramadan death toll stands at 2207
