    BEIRUT - About 50 people, among whom were 12 civilians, have been killed in the past 24 hours in a series of Saudi-led Arab coalition airstrikes against Iran-allied Shia Houthi rebel positions, according to various media sources in the region.

    The bombings took place in the Hodeida province, on the Red Sea.

    According to the UN, other airstrikes that took place on December 26 caused 68 deaths including civilians, of whom 14 were members of the same family in the Hodeida province and 54 in a market in the Taiz province.

    The Saudi-led Arab coalition has been bombing the Houthis in Yemen since March 2015, but thus far has not managed to overcome the rebels, who continue to control the country's capital city Sanaa.

    The internationally recognized government of Yemeni President Abd Rabbo Mansur Hadi, allied with Saudi Arabia, has its seat in the southern city of Aden.
