18 civilians killed, 300 wounded in zionist Saudi airstrikes in Sana’a
At least 18 civilians have been killed in Saudi airstrikes on a missile depot in the Yemeni capital city of Sana’a.
According to Yemeni medics on Monday, 300 have been wounded and scores of nearby houses and vehicles were destroyed in the attack hitting the Faj Attan district in the mountainous outskirts of the capital, where the missile depot is located.
Two of the dead and ten of the wounded civilians were employees of the local television channel, al-yemen al-Youm.
The site has been attacked several times during the four-week Saudi air campaign, with a Yemeni official saying that the air raids are destroying parts of the mountain.
The explosions shattered the windows and sent clouds of smoke into the sky, besides causing huge damage to the area.
Saudi Arabia’s air campaign against Yemen started on March 26 – without a United Nations mandate – in a bid to restore power to the country’s fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.
According to reports, at least 2,680 people, including women and children, have so far lost their lives in the attacks.
