Entire Family Killed in Saudi Airstrike in Yemeni Sa’ada Province

14 August 2015 16:54



The Saudi fighter jets continued their airstrikes against the residential areas in Yemen’s Sa’ada province, killing all the six members of a family, local sources said Friday.

The sources said that the Saudi-led coalition warplanes targeted residential areas in Sa’ada province, which resulted in the killing of six members of a family and injuring of some others.

The sources added that scores of civilians were killed and injured in the massive air attacks of the Saudi coalition air force in Abb, Marib province in the last week.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 142 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

The Monarchy’s attacks have so far claimed the lives of at least 5,392 civilians, mostly women and children.
