  • Saudi airstrikes leave five more civilians dead in northern Yemen

At least five civilians have been killed when Saudi military aircraft carried out airstrikes in Yemen’s mountainous northern province of Sa’ada as the Riyadh regime presses ahead with its atrocious bombardment campaign against its crisis-hit southern neighbor.

Saudi fighter jets conducted an aerial assault against a car as it was traveling along a road in the Kitaf wa Al Boqe'e district of the province on Monday evening, claiming the lives of four people, Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah television network reported.

The report added that the fallen victims were all members of the same family, and that there were a child and a pregnant woman among the deceased.

Earlier in the day, a civilian lost his life when Saudi warplanes struck Ghamar area in Razih district in the same Yemeni province.

Saudi artillery rounds and mortar shells also rained down on residential neighborhoods in Razih, but there were no immediate reports about possible casualties and the extent of damage caused.
