Over 100 Rockets, Mortar Shells Hit Yemen’s Sa’ada


Saudi Arabia has fired over 100 rockets and mortar shells on the Yemeni province of Sa’ada in the last 24 hours.
The Arabic-language Al-Mayadeen television reported Saudi air strikes and shelling on Sa’ada and Hajjah provinces on Monday.

The Saudi army has pounded Sa’ada with more than 100 rockets and mortar shells in the past 24 hours.

The Saudi army has also fired artillery shells at al-Malahit, Razeh and Harad border areas in today.

The Saudi-led coalition warplanes have also bombed the Taiz city today.

Saudi Arabia launched its bombing campaign against Yemen on March 26 in an attempt to restore power to fugitive President Mansour Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

The Monarchy’s attacks have so far claimed the lives of at least 3,812 civilians, mostly women and children, according to FNA’s independent tally.
