17 Yemeni Civilians Killed in Saudi-US Airstrikes on Sanaa
At least 10 people have been killed on Thursday and many more wounded in Saudi Arabia’s latest airstrike on Yemen.
The Saudi-US warplanes bombed a residential neighborhood, and attacked a sports stadium and a military barracks in Yemen’s capital city Sana’a. Some other raids were also carried out on civilian targets in the country’s central western Dhamar province and central Ma’rib province.
Seven more civilians were killed in the capital Thursday evening, including 4 women and one baby-girl, and 10 others were wounded during a Saudi-US airstrike that targeted a 4-floor building in 60th Street near the Libyan city.
The Saudi-led coalition on Yemen also launched an aerial bombardment over Abu-Moussa Al-Asha’ri military camp in Al-Khoha province. However, no casualties been reported.
In a separate development, the Yemeni army and the Popular Committees forces managed to paralyze a Saudi tank in the Qewa military post in Jizan border area.
On March 26, Saudi Arabia began its aggression against Yemen – without a UN mandate – in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and restore power to the country’s fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.
The Saudi-US war on Yemen has so far left more than 5000 dead and thousands of others wounded.
