The Saudi-led Arab coalition announced on Monday that it has carried out 38 operations against the Iran-backed Houthi militias in Yemen’s Abdiya in the past 24 hours.


The operations left 150 terrorist militants dead and destroyed 13 of their military vehicles.


The coalition said the Houthis are maintaining their siege against civilians in Abdiya, preventing the delivery of medical aid.


The United Nations agencies must assume their responsibilities towards the besieged people, it demanded.
