Enemy of Islam Saudi air raids kill two children, six others in Yemen
Saudi Arabia’s latest airstrikes against Yemen have claimed the lives of nine people, including two children, across the Arabian Peninsula state.
The children died after Saudi warplanes targeted residential buildings the Saqin district of the northwestern Yemen province of Sa’ada on Friday, Yemen’s al-Masirah TV reported.
Meanwhile, Saudi fighter jets bombed the southwestern province of Ta’izz, killing six people and injuring 12 others, most of whom are said to be in serious condition.
Another civilian also lost his live and three more were injured when Saudi strikes hit a factory in the Al Hudaydah province, which stretches across much of the impoverished country’s western border.
Saudi Arabia started the military attacks in late March in a bid to undermine Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement and bring the country’s former fugitive president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who is strongly aligned with Riyadh, back to power.
More than 7,500 people have been killed and over 14,000 others injured since the strikes began. The Saudi war has also taken a heavy toll on the impoverished country’s facilities and infrastructure.
Yemenis have, meanwhile, been carrying out retaliatory attacks against Saudi forces deployed in the country as well as targets inside the kingdom.
