Heavy fighting along Yemen's west coast between pro-government forces and Iran-backed rebels in recent days has left dozens dead from both sides, Yemeni officials and witnesses said Sunday. Government forces, backed by an Arab coalition, have been advancing in the area in recent weeks as they battle Iran-allied rebels known as Houthis. The coalition targeted rebels in the district of Ad-Durayhimi south of Hudaida with airstrikes, killing at least 18 people, the officials said.The rebels, known as the Houthis, were trying to break into ad-Durayhimi, about 20 kilometers south of Hudaida International Airport, they said.The Arab coalition launched the campaign to retake Hudaida in June, with Emirati troops leading the force of government soldiers and irregular militia fighters backing Yemen's exiled government.Hudaida, home to 600,000 people, is some 150 kilometers southwest of the capital Sanaa.
