AL DURAIHIMI, Yemen — Heavy clashes killed 39 combatants outside Yemen’s rebel-held port city of Hodeida on Thursday, as a Saudi and UAE-backed offensive to retake the key aid hub entered its second day.

Yemen’s Huthi rebels suffered 30 fatalities in the clashes, which took place two kilometres from Hodeida airport, south of the city, medical sources told AFP.

Nine pro-government troops were killed in the same area, the medics said.
