21 Yemenis Killed in Fresh Saudi Air-raids
KABUL: (Middle East Press) Saudi’s fresh air-raids in the capital of Sa’ada province in northwestern Yemen targeted a residential area killing at least 21 civilians including women and children.
Saudi forces fired at least 100 rockets on the city of Sa’ada in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
The assault followed earlier aerial bombing targeting the provinces of Sa’ada and Hajjah.
The top Ansarullah figure underlined that the military offensive, which is in its 42nd day, was launched after US and Saudi statesmen felt they were losing ground in the wake of political developments in the impoverished Arab state.
Saudi Arabia started its military aggression against Yemen on March 26 – without a UN mandate – in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and to restore power to the country’s fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who is a staunch ally of Riyadh.
