80 casualties in heavy fighting near Yemen's Hodeida, says official
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media, while the witnesses did so for fear of reprisal.
They said Sunday that forces backed by a Saudi-led coalition have been trying to seize the rebel-held district of the ad-Durayhimi south of Hodeida city and at least 100 have been wounded over a 24-hour period.
The Yemen conflict was sparked by the rebels' takeover of Yemen's capital, Sanaa in 2014, which routed the internationally recognized government.
