20 civilians kill in Saudi airstrikes on Yemen, injure dozens

At least 20 Yemeni civilians have been killed and dozens of others injured in new airstrikes carried out by Saudi Arabia on different areas across Yemen.

According to local media outlets, six members of a family were killed in a Saudi airstrike on a house in the northwestern Yemeni province of Sa’ada on Wednesday.

Reports say that Saudi jets have conducted at least 21 airstrikes on the city of Sa’ada since early in the morning.

According to local media outlets, Saudi warplanes targeted a gas station and a truck carrying foodstuffs in an airstrike on the Yemen capital, Sana’a, on Wednesday, killing two civilians and injuring tens of others. The Saudi warplanes also pounded a stadium in Sana’a, killing a civilian.

Latest reports from the capital say that the Saudi jets are incessantly bombarding the city.

At least eight Yemeni civilians were also killed and a number of civilians were injured when a Saudi aerial attack targeted an area in the district of Harad in the northwestern Yemeni province of Hajjah.

Another Yemeni was killed and three others sustained injuries in a Saudi airstrike on an area in the district of Kushar in Hajjah.

Saudi jets also pounded areas in the district of al-Sayyani in Yemen’s southern province of Ibb, killing two women and injuring a child.

Yemen’s southwestern province of Aden was also targeted over 100 times by Saudi jets.

The Yemeni provinces of Sa’ada, Ta’izz, Lahij, and Ma’rib were also bombarded by Saudi fighter jets.

Riyadh launched its military aggression against Yemen on March 26 – without a UN mandate – in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and to restore power to the country’s fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of Saudi Arabia.

More than 3,000 people, including 1,500 civilians, have been killed over the past three months in Yemen, according to the United Nations. Some local sources put the number of the dead at 4,500.
