Saudi Strikes on Yemen Slay 74 Civilians in less than 48 Hours

Saudi regime’s ongoing airstrikes against the Yemeni people between Friday and Saturday have claimed the lives of at least 74 people, injuring around 130 others across Yemen.

Saudi jets pummeled the Yemeni capital Sana’a, killing 35 people and injuring more than 120 others. Yemen’s Saba Net news agency said the number of the victims could rise due to the intensity of the attacks.

The aircraft targeted the Yemeni Interior Ministry building, public services facilities and residential buildings in the city.

Al-Manar correspondent in Yemen said the preliminary toll from the Saudi aggression on homes in Old Sanaa was six women and four children.

Striking the Sirwah district in the Ma’rib province in west-central Yemen, Saudi planes killed four civilians and left a number of people wounded.

The kingdom’s warplanes attacked the Al Bayda province in southern Yemen, slaying a child and wounding two of the victim’s family members.

As many as 21 people were killed and two others wounded after the planes attacked a village in the northwestern Yemeni province of Sa’ada. Saudi attacks also claimed the lives of 13 Yemeni citizens and injured four others elsewhere in the province.

The Yemeni al-Masirah TV network, meanwhile, reported that Yemen’s Army and popular committees had struck two Saudi military vehicles in Jizan, killing six Saudi military personnel and injuring a number of others.

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

The Saudi-US war on Yemen has so far left more than 5000 dead and thousands of others wounded.
