Saudi Airstrikes Kill Several Civilians in Yemen

Nine Yemeni civilians were killed and three others were injured in the Saudi-led coalition airstrikes that hit Al Majza`ah area in the Yemen’s northern province of Imran on Tuesday, the Arabic language Al Manar television channel reported.

Also, in the northern province of Sa’ada, six civilians were killed and seven others injured in the Saudi-led coalition airstrikes that hit Qutainat area in Baqem district.

In Majaz district in Sa’ada, four civilians were killed and seven others injured.

The Saudi warplanes launched also two airstrikes on Malahidh area in Dhaher district, and seven airstrikes on Mandabah and Aal-hamaqi areas in Baqem district.

The Saudi led coalition targeted Kutaf district in Sa’ada and pounded Aal-Jubara valley with four airstrikes.

Meanwhile, four children were seriously injured as a result of explosion of Saudi-led coalition’s cluster bombs at Sheab area in Abs district in Hajjah province.

The Saudi warplanes launched eight airstrikes on Maqshap area in Ka'aidana district, another one on Hairan and 26 airstrikes on Haradh and Medi district.

In another development, in the capital, Sana’a, two Saudi-led coalition airstrikes hit Nehm district.

Yemen’s defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for about three years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi.

Over 14,000 Yemenis, including thousands of women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly military campaign.
