At least nine civilians have been killed as Saudi warplanes carried out fresh air strikes against a northwestern province.
Yemen’s al-Masirah television network said on Friday that as many as seven bodies had been retrieved following the air raid against residential buildings in al-Safra District of Sa’ada Province.
It reported that Saudi jets also targeted a vehicle carrying civilians in the same area, killing another two people and injuring seven more.
More than 12,000 people have been killed since March 2015, when the kingdom began its offensive against the Arab world’s poorest nation.
Riyadh seeks to restore Yemen’s former government, its close ally, and crush the country’s Houthi Ansarullah movement.
The Saudi regime has also been enforcing an all-out blockade against Yemen, claiming it works to halt arms transfers to the Houthi movement.
The popular fighters have been defending the nation against the assaults, launching retaliatory attacks targeting the kingdom’s extreme southwestern regions.
