Ahlul Bayt News Agency - At least seven people have been killed in a new wave of Saudi airborne aggression against war-torn Yemen, as Riyadh’s unabated bombardment of residential areas keeps taking lives of civilians throughout the impoverished country.
Yemen’s al-Masirah TV reported on Saturday that the civilians, including four children and a woman, lost their lives as Saudi fighter jets targeted a residential house in the Yemeni capital Sana’a.
Saudi warplanes also targeted a number of localities in the province several times, including Sarf dam, a military police building and Beit al-Awzari area in the Bani al-Hareth district.
Similar assaults hit 12 times an educational center in the Sawadiyah district of Yemen’s southeastern province of Bayda.
They also bombarded a pipeline in the central province of Ma'rib and targeted a camp that was set up for displaced people in the Sarwah district of the same province.
In the western province of Hudaydah, Saudi jets struck an air defense site in Salif and a marine base in Kamaran Island multiple times. Warplanes also carried out five airstrikes against Mokha port in Yemen’s southwestern province of Ta'izz.
There is still no word on the possible casualties of those raids.
In retaliatory attacks carried out by Yemeni Ansarullah fighters, a tank at a military site and five other military vehicles were destroyed west of the Ghamar village in Saudi’s southwestern border region of Jizan.
Yemeni army says it also took control of four Saudi military bases in the region, adding that they inflicted casualties on Saudi forces.
Saudi Arabia started its military aggression against Yemen on March 26 – without a UN mandate – in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and restore power to the fugitive former Yemeni president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.
According to a report released on September 19 by the Yemen’s Civil Coalition, over 6,000 Yemenis have so far lost their lives in the airstrikes, and a total of nearly 14,000 people have been injured.
