8 civilians killed in new Saudi airstrikes on western Yemen
Nearly a dozen civilians have lost their lives in three Saudi airstrikes against Yemen’s western province of Hajjah.
On Wednesday, Saudi fighter jets bombarded a residential neighborhood in the Sharas district of the province, located 127 kilometers (78 miles) northwest of the capital, Sana’a, leaving eight people dead.
Saudi warplanes also launched several airstrikes against a building housing the state-run television network north of Sana’a. There were no immediate reports of casualties and the extent of the damage inflicted.
Separately, Yemeni army soldiers backed by fighters from allied Popular Committees took control of the al-Hathira military camp in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern region of Jizan. Yemeni forces also destroyed a number of military equipment belonging to Saudi troopers in the process.
