Fresh Saudi airstrikes Kill Over 50 in Yemen’s Sana’a

Fresh Saudi airstrikes Kill Over 50  in Yemen’s Sana’a

Aftermath of a Saudi airstrike in Yemen

Dozens of civilians have been killed in fresh air raids conducted by Saudi warplanes against residential areas in Yemen’s Western Sana’a Province.

Alwaght- Dozens of civilians have been killed in fresh air raids conducted by Saudi warplanes against residential areas in Yemen’s Western Sana’a Province.

Arabic-language al-Masirah television network reported Wednesday that the bodies of at least 30 people were recovered from the rubble of an inn in Sana’a Province’s Arhab district, which was hit by Saudi air raids.

The death toll is expected to rise as an estimated 70 people were in the inn prior to the aerial assaults.

Meanwhile, the Saudi air raids, which targeted security centers in the south of Sana’a City, martyred two Yemenis and injured over 10 others, according to the report.

Separately on Wednesday, Yemeni army soldiers and allied popular forces launched rocket and artillery attacks on positions held by Saudi mercenaries in several areas across Yemen.

The retaliatory attacks killed 3 Saudi mercenaries in Yemen’s Southern Ta’izz and Bayda Provinces

The Saudi-led coalition started a bloody aggression on Yemen in March 2015 to oust the popular Ansarullah movement and restore to power fugitive Abdul Rabbuh Mansour Hadi who resigned as president and fled to Riyadh. The Saudis have failed to achieve their stated objective and are now stuck in the Yemen quagmire while indiscriminately bombarding the impoverished stated on an almost daily basis.

The Saudi war on Yemen, one of the world's most impoverished countries, has killed over 13,000 people and left tens of thousands wounded while displacing millions.

Last week Secretary-General Antonio Guterres was reported as saying in a draft report that the Saudi-led coalition last year killed hundreds of children in its ongoing aggression on Yemen.

The report, leaked to the media last  Thursday, said the United Nations verified 1,340 casualties and attributed 683 – representing 51 percent – to attacks carried out by the Saudi-led aggressors.

Another report issued early August noted that at least 10,000 people have died in Yemen as a result of the Saudi-led coalition's restriction on airspace and the closure of Sanaa airport a year ago, an Aid agency has said.
