Saudi airstrikes target food trucks in Yemen’s Sa’ada

Saudi Arabia’s deadly airstrikes in Yemen have continued with warplanes pounding the outskirts of the capital as well as a district in the northwest of the country.

Saudi jets on Sunday targeted the Fag Atan area, located in the mountainous outskirts of the capital Sana’a.

Saudi warplanes also struck trucks carrying much needed food supplies in the northwestern province of Sa’ada. At least three people were killed in the attack.

The Saudi fighter jets also bombed a border area in the same province.

Elsewhere, in the southwestern province of Ta’izz, Saudi jets carried out over a dozen airstrikes, hitting a presidential palace there. There were no immediate reports of casualties.

Meanwhile, the Yemeni army soldiers backed by fighters from the popular committees reportedly repelled at least three onslaughts by Saudi-backed militants in the strategic Bab al-Mandeb area in Ta’izz and killed tens of them.

Officials affiliated with the Houthi Ansarulah movement said their fighters had destroyed six tanks belonging to Saudi-backed militants in the area.

The Yemen Today TV channel aired footage showing the deployment of Yemeni forces in the Bab al-Mandeb area, refuting some media claims that Saudi-backed militants had taken control of the area.
