3 Dead, Few Injured As Saudi Strikes Hit Aid Convoy In Yemen
KABUL: (Middle East Press) The Saudi fighter jets on Sunday fired several artilleries on two aid trucks that were heading toward the southeastern city of Taiz to distribute humanitarian supplies among crisis-stricken people, killing three people dead and injuring many, Yemen’s al-Masirah satellite TV network reported.
Following the fresh Saudi aerial attacks at leave over two dozen people have reportedly been killed and several others wounded in Yemen, which also targeted a humanitarian aid convoy in the country’s southwest.
Separately, more than 24 people were killed after Saudi warplanes bombarded a base run by Ansarullah fighters in a region situated between the southern Yemeni provinces of Abyan and al-Bayda, late on Saturday, according to a report published by Yemen-based Arabic-language Wattan news agency.
The report added that 21 Ansarullah revolutionaries as well as three civilians lost their lives in the airborne raid. The extent of the material damage caused by the strike was not immediately available.
Despite the Saudi air strikes, the Houthi movement has made fresh gains in Yemen, capturing the provincial government headquarters in the southern city of Aden.
Saudi Arabia’s air campaign against Yemen started on March 26 without a UN mandate in a bid to restore power to Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
