18 August 2015 16:37


Saudi military aircraft have carried out a new round of attacks against several areas across Yemen as Riyadh presses ahead with its military campaign against the impoverished country.

On Tuesday morning, Saudi fighter jets launched 10 airstrikes against the al-Mina district in the northwestern Yemeni province of Hudaydah, inflicting considerable damage on the area, Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Mayadeen satellite news network reported.

There were no immediate reports of possible casualties in the aerial assaults.

Saudi warplanes also pounded the naval college building in the provincial capital, with no information about the extent of damage caused and casualties.

Saudi jets also hit Utmah district in the southeastern Yemeni province of Dhamar early on Tuesday.

The developments came only hours after Saudi warplanes carried out three airborne attacks on Harad district of Yemen’s northwestern province of Hajjah, located approximately 130 kilometers (80 miles) northwest of the capital, Sana’a. No reports of fatalities were immediately available.
