Fresh Saudi Aerial Attacks Kill Seven In Yemen
At least seven civilians have lost their lives when Saudi military aircraft carried out a series of airstrikes against residential areas in conflict-ridden Yemen.
A local source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said three women and four children were killed as Saudi fighter jets bombarded an area in the Bayt al-Faqih district of Yemen’s western coastal province of Hudaydah on Thursday morning, Arabic-language al-Masirah television network reported.
A number of Saudi artillery rounds hit al-Sheikh area of Monabbih district in the mountainous northwestern province of Sa’ada shortly afterwards, but there were no immediate reports of casualties and the extent of damage caused.
Yemeni forces and fighters from allied popular committees, in return, fired several rockets against the Alab border crossing in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern border region of Asir, leaving scores of Saudi troopers and pro-Saudi militiamen loyal to the former government dead and injured.
They had earlier targeted a gathering of Saudi soldiers deployed behind al-Montazah military base in the Dhahran district of the kingdom’s Asir region, but no reports of casualties were available.
On Wednesday, Yemeni soldiers and their allies shot and killed two Saudi soldiers in the hilly Abu Dhabrah region of Saudi Arabia’s border region of Jizan.
