Saudi Fighter Jets Continue Air Raids across Yemen
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Saudi warplanes carried out new airstrikes against several areas across Yemen, inflicting more human loss and material damage on the war-torn Arab country.
The Saudi-led coalition warplanes on Sunday launched attacks on Aqiq area in Ketaf district and Baqem district in the northern province of Sa’ada in which two Yemeni civilians were killed, a security official told Saba news agency on Monday.
Meanwhile, Saudi forces fired missiles and artillery shells at several areas in Razeh and Munabeh districts, causing damage to residents’ properties.
In another development, the Saudi-led coalition targeted the Tahtia district in the major Red Sea port of al-Hodeidah in which a Yemeni civilian was killed and three others were injured.
The forces of the Yemeni army and Popular Committees, in retaliatory attacks against the Saudi-led coalition, targeted eight military vehicles belonging to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and killed 12 soldiers in Mouza district in the southwestern province of Taiz on Sunday evening.
Yemen’s defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for almost 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, a close ally of Riyadh.
Over 14,000 Yemenis, including thousands of women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly military campaign.
