The Coalition said the Houthis were choosing to be hit by targeting civilians.

They have increased their cross-border attacks on civilian targets in Saudi Arabia this year, a recent report said.

Separately, the US Navy announced on Wednesday that it had intercepted a weapons shipment from Iran to the Houthis earlier this week.

The Iran-backed Houthis continue to reject talks over a deal to halt the yearslong war in Yemen, which has led to one of the worst humanitarian disasters in the world.
