The Arab military coalition resumed airstrikes against rebel supply lines around Hodeida Sunday, two days after a U.N. envoy visited the lifeline Yemeni port city, pro-government military officials said.The renewed violence came after U.N. envoy Martin Griffiths visited Hodeida Friday to assess the humanitarian situation ahead of peace talks planned for December between Yemen's coalition-backed government and the rebels.The rebel leader Sunday described the renewed air raids and other hostilities in Hodeida as "an insult" to the U.N. envoy.According to U.N. figures, nearly 10,000 people have been killed since the coalition joined the conflict in 2015 to reinforce the government, triggering what the United Nations calls the world's worst humanitarian crisis.
