• Saudi attacks claim three lives in Yemen

At least three Yemenis have been killed in separate attacks by the Saudi military targeting western Yemen.

On Wednesday, the Saudi aircraft bombarded the port city of al-Hudaydah in west-central Yemen, killing two people, Yemen’s al-Masirah television network reported.

Separately, Saudi border guards opened fire at residential structures in a village in the Monabbih district of Sa’ada Province, which is located in Yemen’s extreme northwest. The attack left a civilian dead.

Saudi warplanes also dropped cluster bombs on the Wadi al-Jarrah base controlled by Yemeni forces in the kingdom’s Jizan region.

Also on Wednesday, counterattacks by Yemeni snipers killed two Saudi troops at Jizan’s al-Farizah military base.

Yemeni forces also aborted an attempt by Saudi-allied militants to advance in al-Ghayl District of northwestern al-Jawf Province.

The operation killed and injured a number of the militants.
