  • Two civilians killed by Saudi artillery fire in Yemen’s Sa’ada despite UN-brokered ceasefire

At least two people have been martyred after Saudi border soldiers fired a barrage of artillery rounds at a residential area in Yemen's Northwestern Province of Sa'ada, despite an ongoing two-month nationwide truce brokered by the United Nations.

The Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news network, citing a Yemeni military source speaking on condition of anonymity, reported that the victims attained martyrdom on Saturday night as Saudi military struck the Razih district.

Three other people sustained injuries in the attack as well.

There were no immediate reports about the extent of damage caused as a result of the strike.

Furthermore, in the previous 24 hours, the Saudi-led military coalition's soldiers and their allied Takfiri mercenaries have violated the truce 108 times.

According to Yemen's official Saba news agency, the violations included 76 spying flights over several localities in the northern Yemeni Provinces of al-Jawf, Hajjah and Sa’ada as well as the strategic central Province of al-Bayda.

Saudi-backed militants also set up combat fortifications atop al-Ta'az Mountain in al-Akad area of the energy-rich central Yemeni Province of Ma’rib, and sought to launch an offensive against Yemeni army troops and fighters from Popular Committees in the Silw district of the southern coastal Province of Ta’iz.

Saudi-sponsored militants also targeted residential buildings at al-Zour village of the Sirwah district in Ma’rib Province, besides various sites in Mala'a and al-Balaq al-Sharqi villages in the same Yemeni province. No reports about possible casualties and the extent of damage were quickly available.
