Saudi jets carried out two air raids against Airport Street in the heavily populated al-Thawra neighborhood of the capital Sana’a early on Saturday, Yemen’s al-Masirah television network reported.
However, there were no immediate reports about possible casualties and the extent of damage caused.
Earlier, Saudi fighter jets had launched an airstrike against al-Sabaha area of the Bani Matar district in Sana’a, but no information about casualties and damage was quickly available.
Saudi aircraft also bombarded the Baqim district of Yemen’s northwestern province of Sa’ada, though no reports about possible casualties were immediately available.
In Yemen’s northern province of Hajjah, seven aerial raids targeted the Harad district.
Two airstrikes were also carried out by Saudi jets against the Wadi Ubaidah district area in the central province of Ma’rib.
In the same Yemeni province, eleven further aerial raids targeted the district of al-Jubah.
Meanwhile, a leading humanitarian organization for children has described January as the bloodiest month since 2018 for Yemen, stating that one Yemeni civilian was either killed or wounded every hour during the last month.
“Between January 6 and February 2, more than 220 adults and 15 children were killed and over 354 adults and 30 children were injured as well,” London-based Save the Children said in a report, warning that the actual number is estimated to be much higher.
The report emphasized that the number of civilian casualties in January was almost three times more than the average monthly toll in 2021, as the figure stood at 209.
Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies, backed by the United States and European powers, launched the war on Yemen in March 2015, with the goal of bringing the government of former Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi back to power and crushing the popular Ansarullah resistance movement.
The war has left hundreds of thousands of Yemenis dead and displaced millions more. It has also destroyed Yemen’s infrastructure and spread famine and infectious diseases there.
Despite heavily-armed Saudi Arabia’s incessant bombardment of the impoverished country, the Yemeni armed forces have gradually grown stronger, leaving Riyadh and its allies, most notably the UAE, bogged down in the country.
