At least eight people, including four children, were killed on Friday when a Saudi-led coalition airstrike hit a petrol station in Yemen's southwestern province of Taiz, pro-government Almasdaronline news website reported.

Dozens of others were wounded in the air attack which targeted the petrol station in Maweyah district in the eastern part of Taiz, Almasdaronline said.

However, Houthi-controlled health authorities in the capital Sanaa said the death toll had increased to 12.

There have been no comments yet from the Saudi-led coalition.

Last week, a coalition airstrike hit a tall building in the center of Sanaa, killing six family members, according to the residents and medics.

The Saudi-led coalition has been intervening in the civil war in Yemen since 2015 to fight the Houthi rebels who seized most of Yemen's north, including the capital Sanaa.
