Continued fighting in Yemen between Houthi rebels seeking to overthrow the tyrannical Sunni Muslim government and ground and air forces of the SSaudi Arabian led coalition backed by the Obama administration in the USA killed at least 66 people in 24 hours, medics and security sources said Sunday, as pro-government forces pushed to oust rebels from a key stretch of coastline. Airstrikes by US supplied Saudi fighter and bomber aircraft and fighting on the ground around the strategic Bab al-Mandab strait killed at least 52 fighters among Houthi rebels and allied troops loyal to ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh, the sources said.

Forces loyal to President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi launched a vast offensive on Jan. 7 to retake the Dhubab district overlooking the Bab al-Mandab, a key maritime route connecting the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean. In the recent fighting fourteen members of the coalition force lost their lives

Coalition warplanes and Apache attack helicopters have been pounding rebel positions with bombs and missiles in support of pro-Hadi forces advancing toward the Red Sea city of Mokha, military sources said. By Sunday, loyalist forces were within 10 kilometers of Mokha, they said, but the offensive has been slowed by mines laid by rebels.

The coalition intervened in Yemen in March 2015 in support of the beleaguered president as the Iranian backed Shi’ite rebels seemed set to topple the regime. Despite the coalition’s superior firepower, the rebels and their allies still control the capital Sanaa and much of the central and northern highlands, as well as the 450-kilometer Red Sea coast.

United Nations peace envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed arrived in Sanaa Sunday for talks and to push a peace plan that would restore a cease-fire and lead to a political transition in the country.
