Saudi oil tanker hit in Houthi attack off Yemen

The air strike occurred in the city of Hodeidah.

He reiterated that the legitimate government and the Arab coalition will continue to fight until "they achieve complete victory and eliminate the most unsafe, bloodiest and worst sectarian coup in the history of modern Yemen".

The 12 victims were all from the same family including seven children, they said.

The coalition statement says the attack occurred in global waters on Tuesday near the Red Sea port of Hodeida.

Today I announce that Australia will provide further humanitarian assistance to support communities in Yemen facing starvation and disease due to ongoing conflict.

The United Nations raised more than $2 billion on Tuesday to help civilians in Yemen. The operation of the port, controlled by the Iran-aligned Houthis, was not affected by the air strike.

Last year's Yemen appeal for $2.5bn was 73% funded, but the needs have intensified in a country battered since 2015 by a Saudi-led military offensive aimed at repelling Iran-backed Houthi rebels who control the capital.

According to the United Nations, 8.4 million people are on the verge of starvation in Yemen, where food imports are essential to sustain the population.

The Houthis, in turn, have launched rockets into Saudi territory with mixed results.

On Monday, a coalition airstrike struck a house of an internally displaced people (IDPs) in the Yemeni port city of Hodeidah, killing at least 14 people, including women and children and wounding nine others, according to local officials. Reuters was unable to independently verify those claims.

It was not immediately clear if the missile was intercepted by Saudi Arabia's missile defence system.

"Firing ballistic missiles in the direction of populated towns and villages contravenes the International Human Rights Law", Col Al Malki said.

"But just as unlawful coalition air strikes don't justify the Houthis' indiscriminate attacks, the Saudis can't use Houthi rockets to justify impeding life-saving goods for Yemen's civilian population".
