In the northern province of Saada, which borders Saudi Arabia, airstrikes hit a house and a car in Bakim district, killing at least six, including two women and two children, and injuring three others, a local security official said.

In the Red Sea eastern province of Hodeidah, an airstrike targeted a mango farm in Jarbah area in al-Jarrah district, killing two farmers, a local security official said.
