1 May 2015 11:44



At least eight people have been killed in a Saudi airstrike in the Yemeni capital, Sana’a.

Two women were among the victims of the Saudi bombardment in the al-Sha’ab neighborhood in the early hours of Friday.

A number of people also suffered injuries in the attack.

The Saudi warplanes also pounded the capital’s districts of Faj Attan and Hasbah, as well as the al-Marwaneh neighborhood. There have been no immediate reports of casualties in the Saudi airstrikes in these three areas.

Hours earlier, the Saudi warplanes fired a number of missiles into the international airport in Sana’a, inflicting serious damage to it.

The Saudi fighter jets also pounded areas located between the towns of Razeh and Shadda in Yemen’s northwestern province of Sa’ada.

Saudi Arabia launched its military aggression against Yemen on March 26 – without a United Nations mandate – in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and to restore power to the country’s fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who is a staunch ally of Riyadh.

On April 21, Riyadh announced the end of the first phase of its unlawful military operations, which claimed the lives of nearly 1,000 people, but airstrikes have continued with Saudi bombers targeting different areas across the country in a new phase.

According to Yemen’s Health Ministry, the Saudi aggression has killed nearly 150 children and around 100 women so far.
