Saudi warplanes target Yemen’s Sa’ada with cluster bombs

Saudi warplanes have bombarded several areas across Yemen’s Sa’ada province with banned cluster bombs.

Saudi warplanes have bombarded several areas across Yemen’s Sa’ada province with banned cluster bombs.

Yemen's al-Massira television channel reported on Wednesday that the Saudi airborne assaults claimed the lives an unspecified number of Yemeni civilians.

Riyadh has used cluster bombs on Yemenis multiple times during the past months. Back on Monday, Saudi warplanes dropped at least 10 cluster bombs on the Haydan district of the northwestern province a day after Yemeni media released a video showing the residential area of Maran village in the same province being targeted with the banned bombs by Saudi warplanes.

Meanwhile, Saudi fighter jets conducted a series of airstrikes, targeting an air defense camp in the western province of Hudaydah, as well as two islands in the northwestern province of Hajjah.

Airstrikes on the western Sana’a province also claimed the lives of at least two people and left several others injured.

In retaliatory attacks against Saudi forces, Ansarullah fighters and allied army units managed to kill at least a dozen supporters of the fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, in the central province of Ma’rib.

Yemen has been under incessant Saudi strikes since March 26. The strikes are supposedly meant to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and restore power to Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.

Some 7,000 people have lost their lives in the Saudi airstrikes, and a total of nearly 14,000 people have been injured since late March.

The UN reported earlier this month that some 114,000 people have also been forced to flee the war-stricken country due to the Saudi aggression.
