Yemen: 30 Civilians Killed in Saudi Airstrikes

22 September 2015 13:21



Saudi fighter jets bombed several residential areas across Yemen, killing 30 civilians in the province of Hajjah.

On Monday, the Saudi airstrikes claimed the lives of 30 people in Hajjah, and dozens more in the province of Ibb.

Also on Monday, Saudi fighter jets pounded several residential areas in the Yemeni capital city of Sana’a, killing at least 25 civilians.

Saudi warplanes targeted the districts of Hasbah, Sawan as well as a sports stadium in the capital on Monday, killing 25 people and injuring dozens of others.

Several residential houses as well as an administrative building were destroyed in the airstrikes.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 181 days now to restore power to Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 6,161 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

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.
