Hundreds of thousands of civilian lives "hang in the balance" in Yemen's Hudaida province, where families are living in fear of shelling and airstrikes, the U.N. said Thursday. Fighting has raged in the last two days close to the rebel-held port city of Hudaida, a crucial entry point for humanitarian aid the Arab coalition alleges also serves as a key conduit for arms to Iran-backed Houthis.The Houthis launched a counter attack to retake Kilo 16 – the main supply route – while there was also fighting over the other road, Kilo 10, the same sources said.Government forces are also trying to cut off the road to Taiz, a fiercely contested and strategic city south of Hudaida.
