TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Saudi warplanes carried out several airstrikes on the Yemeni capital, Sana’a, killing and injuring at least 32 civilians.
The strikes targeted residential areas across the capital on Thursday morning.
According to Yemen's Health Ministry, so far at least 32 people have been killed and injured, Al-Manar reported.
The ministry added that the death toll is expected to rise.
Yemen’s defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for more than four 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.
According to a recent UN report, the combined death toll from the Saudi-led aggression and disease is 233,000, or 0.8 percent of Yemen's 30 million-strong population.
