  •  Fresh Saudi airstrike kills nearly dozen civilians in northern Yemen

Nearly a dozen civilians, mostly women and children, have been killed when Saudi military aircraft struck a residential area in Yemen’s northwestern province of Hajjah as the Riyadh regime presses ahead with its bombardment campaign against its southern neighbor.

Saudi fighter jets carried out an airstrike on a neighborhood in the Washhah district of the province on Sunday afternoon, leaving ten people dead and two others injured, unnamed local sources told Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah television network.

Earlier in the day, Saudi-led warplanes conducted three air raids on the Shada'a district and another two on the al-Dhaher district of the northern Yemeni province of Sa’ada.

There were, however, no immediate reports on possible casualties and the extent of damage caused.

Separately, Saudi jets bombarded Boq district close to the border with the kingdom’s southern region of Najran, though no reports of casualties and damage were quickly available.
