Saudi Raids Kill 11, Injure 4 in Yemen’s Sana’a

Saudi warplanes heavily pounded several markets and a sewing workshop in Sana’a on Sunday and claimed the lives of at least 11 people, Yemen's official Saba Net news agency reported.

4 people were also reported injured.

The report added that several people are still buried under the rubble of the building in the east of the capital.

On March 26, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies began to launch deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to the fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

The death toll from the Saudi-led war so far has reached more than 8000 people. More than half of the total population of Yemen, some 14.4 million people, are also food insecure due to ongoing conflict and import restrictions, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).
