4 killed in fresh Saudi raids on north Yemen

Fresh Saudi airstrikes have targeted a northern province in Yemen, killing at least four civilians.

The fatalities were caused in the Jawf Province on Monday.

Saudi warplanes also targeted an airbase in the Lahij Province in southwestern Yemen, but there were no immediate reports of casualties.

The attacks came only a day after Saudi Arabia bombarded several targets across Yemen, namely the districts of Harad and Midi in the northwestern province of Hajjah, the areas of Wadi Abu Jubarah and al-Malil in the northern province of Sa’ada, and several areas in the central province of Ma’rib.

Saudi Arabia began its military aggression against Yemen on March 26 – without a UN mandate – in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and to restore power to the fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, an ally of Riyadh.

Riyadh has ignored several UN-sponsored ceasefires. According to the United Nations, the conflict in the impoverished country has killed nearly 4,000 people, nearly half of them civilians, since late March.
