Yemen: Saudi Forces begin the attack on the Port of Hudaida

(Yemen)  Forces under the banner of the Saudi Arabian coalition inside Yemen this morning struck the port city of Hudaida after  the Houthis rebels ignored the government's offer of a peaceful settlement, which expired on Tuesday night. The government said it had exhausted all possible political and diplomatic means to make the rebels withdraw its forces from the port city.

The attack included airstrikes backed by ground operations, killing more than 250 Iranian-backed Houthi rebels and led to the capture of 140 Houthi soldiers. In response, the Houthi have targeted any  merchant ship sailing by with advanced anti-ship missiles striking a number of them according to the Saudi Ambassador to the US
