Zio-Saudi fighter jets pound various areas across Yemen


Saudi fighter jets have bombarded various areas across Yemen, killing and wounding a number of people.

The warplanes carried out over 20 airstrikes in the northwestern province of Hajjah on Monday, the Yemeni al-Masirah television network reported.

Saudi jets also targeted the Haydan district in the northwestern Sa’ada Province, killing two women and a girl, according to Yemen’s state news agency, Saba.

Another Saudi raid in the al-Salbah neighborhood of Haydan claimed the lives of two children and a woman, and injured three other civilians.

Also on Monday, a booby trap exploded in the city of Ataq in Yemen’s eastern Shabwah Province, killing one and wounding two others.

Saudi warplanes also targeted a car in the Midi district of Hajjah. Two people were killed and two others were injured in the raid.

Saudi Arabia has been carrying out airstrikes against Yemen since March 26 without a UN mandate. The strikes are meant to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and restore power to the fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a staunch ally of the Al Saud regime.

The United Nations (UN) says more than 2,600 people have been killed and at least 11,000 injured due to the conflict in the Arab country since March 19.
