KABUL: (MEP) Saudi Arabia has conducted fresh airstrikes across Yemen on Wednesday morning in which at least 24 civilians were killed and more than a dozen others sustained injuries, local media reported.
At least 13 people were killed after Saudi warplanes carried out aerial assaults against residential buildings in al-Mahjar Village, which lies on the outskirts of the capital, Sana’a while three others were also killed when Saudi jets targeted their vehicle as it was traveling along Bani Hajil highway in the Nihm district.
Additionally, a civilian and his wife were also killed when Saudi jets pounded the Kharab al-Marashi district of the northern Yemeni province of Jawf.
Saudi jets also bombarded the Hayfan district in the same Yemeni province on Wednesday, wounding four civilians and seriously damaging a telecommunications tower and a mosque in the area.
Elsewhere, two civilians were killed and five others wounded in a Saudi airstrike in the Monabbih district of Yemen’s northwestern province of Sa’ada.
Meanwhile, Yemeni army forces, backed by fighters from Popular Committees, have established full control over the strategic Dhubab district in the southwestern Ta’izz Province following heavy clashes with Saudi-backed militiamen loyal to fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.
At least 25 pro-Riyadh Takfiri mercenaries were killed and 30 others injured in the process.
