Saudi aircraft have intensified their airstrikes in Yemen, targeting Sana’a for the second day after dropping cluster bombs on the capital.
The central Ma’rib province came under the heaviest of attacks and was targeted by 20 airstrikes on Friday, Yemen’s al-Masirah TV said.
Saudi jets bombed Sarvah in Ma’rib, causing extensive damage to the city’s infrastructure.
A residential area in Ta’izz Province was also hit, as well as a number of houses in al-Jawf Province.
According to Yemeni media, the house of a prominent cleric in the small town of al-Ghail in Jawf was also targeted.
Saudi warplanes also bombed Sana’a a day after carrying out dozens of airstrikes in what residents described as the heaviest aerial attacks yet in nine months of aggression.
The Human Rights Watch confirmed cluster bomb attacks against residential areas of the Yemeni capital, saying it could amount to “a war crime.”
