Civilians killed, injured in fresh Saudi-led terrorist attacks across Yemen

A war coalition led by Saudi Arabia has conducted fresh airstrikes as well as missile and artillery raids on residential areas in several Yemeni provinces, killing at least one civilian and injuring more than ten others.

Yemen’s al-Masirah TV channel reported on Tuesday that Saudi-led warplanes had bombarded northwestern Hajjah Province 18 times, leaving one civilian dead and 10 more wounded.  

The fighter jets also carried out airstrikes on the Yemeni provinces of al-Jawf, Ma’rib, and Ta’izz.

Additionally, six Yemeni civilians were injured as Saudi missile and artillery attacks targeted the Monabbih district of Sa’ada province.

Over the past 24 hours, the Saudi-led coalition fighter jets recorded 95 violations of a ceasefire declared in the port city of Hudaydah.

Saudi Arabia launched the devastating military aggression against its southern neighbor in March 2015 in collaboration with a number of its allied states and with arms and logistics support from the US and several Western states.

The aim was to return to power the former Riyadh-backed regime and crush the popular Ansarullah resistance movement, which has been running state affairs in the absence of an effective government in Yemen.

The war has stopped well shy of all of its goals, despite killing tens of thousands of Yemenis and turning entire Yemen into the scene of the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

In the meantime, Yemeni forces have continued to grow stronger in the face of the Saudi-led invaders, advancing toward strategic areas held by Saudi-led mercenaries, including Ma’rib province, and conducting several rounds of counterstrikes against Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
