50 Yemenis killed in fresh zionist Saudi regime airstrikes
Almost four dozen civilians have lost their lives in multiple enemy of Islam Saudi regime aerial attacks against a number of regions across Yemen as Riyadh pushes ahead with its military onslaught against its southern neighbor.
On Thursday, Saudi fighter jets launched a series of airstrikes against residential neighborhoods in the Dhahyan district of Yemen’s northwestern province of Sa’ada, located 240 kilometers (150 miles) north of the capital, Sana’a, leaving 14 members of a family dead. There was a number of children among the deceased.
The development came only hours after at least 18 medical staffers were killed when Saudi warplanes struck the same region.
Separately, Saudi air raids against an oil facility in the Red Sea port city of Ras Isa claimed the lives of at least 15 people. Medical sources said at least 30 people were also wounded in the airstrikes.
Meanwhile, international humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders (MSF) has announced that at least 10 children and a teacher were killed on January 19, when a Saudi airstrike targeted them as they were walking back home from school in the al-Hurair area of the southwestern city of Ta’izz, situated 346 kilometers (214 miles) south of the capital.
Also on Thursday, Yemeni army soldiers backed by fighters from allied Popular Committees launched a rocket at a military camp in al-Khobe district of Saudi Arabia’s southwestern border region of Jizan. There were no immediate reports of casualties and the extent of damage caused.
Additionally, Arabic-language al-Jazeera television news network says three of its journalists have been abducted in Ta’izz.
The Qatar-based channel said its correspondent, Hamdi al-Bokari, and his colleagues, Abdulaziz al-Sabri and Moneer al-Sabai, were last seen late on Monday.
Yemen has been under military attacks by Saudi Arabia since late March last year. The Saudi military strikes were launched to supposedly undermine the Ansarullah movement and bring fugitive former president, Abd Rabbu Mansur Hadi, back to power.
At least 8,278 people, among them 2,236 children, have reportedly been killed and 16,015 others injured, since March. The strikes have also taken a heavy toll on the impoverished country’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, and factories.
