14 Civilians Killed in Saudi Raids across Yemen in 24 Hours
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – At least 14 civilians, including women and children, have been killed in Saudi Arabia’s multiple airstrikes across war-torn Yemen during the past 24 hours, a report said.
Yemen’s official Saba news agency, citing a military source, reported on Wednesday that five of the victims were killed in the districts of Baqem and Kutaf in Saada province.
In Hudaydah province, five civilians were killed and eight others injured when Saudi airstrikes hit two cars in Zabid district.
In Bayda province, a man and his wife were killed by Saudi-paid mercenaries in Qania area.
Two more civilians lost their lives in the southwestern province of Taiz after Saudi jets pounded several areas of Khadir district.
Yemen’s defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for more than 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.
