An air strike by the Arab-led coalition fighting in Yemen killed 12 civilians including seven children in the coastal city of Hudaida Monday, medics and a witness said.Medics and a civilian who saw the wreckage said the air strike had destroyed a house in the al-Hali district, where displaced civilians from other provinces were settled.The operation of port, controlled by the Iran-aligned Houthis, was not affected by the air strike.The alliance, which includes other Sunni Muslim states, has conducted thousands of air strikes targeting Houthi fighters and has often hit civilian areas, although it denies ever doing so intentionally.
