Saudi Arabia has continued bombarding several areas in Yemen, killing at least three people in the Yemeni province of Sa’ada.

According to local media outlets, Saudi forces fired hundreds of shells at the districts of Shada’a and Dhaher in the northwestern province, killing two children and injuring seven civilians.

The Saudi shells also demolished two houses and destroyed several gardens in the province. A Yemeni source said Saudi forces also fired over 70 rockets at the district of Kitaf in Sa’ada.

Reports noted that at least one civilian was killed in the Saudi airstrikes on several residential areas in Sa’ada.

Saudi warplanes also conducted several airstrikes in the southwestern Yemeni province of Ta’iz. A Yemeni military source said one of the Saudi airstrikes targeted a residential house in the district of Salh. The source added that another airstrike hit an area west of the airport in the city of Ta’iz.

In a separate development in Tai’z, Yemeni army forces along with Ansarullah fighters recaptured several positions from al-Qaeda-linked militants.
