The officials told The Associated Press on Monday that airstrikes hit two homes in rural areas northeast of Hodeida.

On Sunday the twisted ruins of a communication tower, also hit in the attack, could be seen lying across the debris of one of the houses, while holes could be seen in the walls of another house.

The personal belongings of the inhabitants lay strewn around in the debris and dust. Many of the victims and casualties were taken to al-Thawra hospital in Hodeida, where medical officials reported that women and children were among the victims.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak to the press.
