At least three people, including a child, have been killed after Saudi-led warplanes hit localities in Yemen’s Hudaydah and Sa’ada provinces, three and a half years after the so-called military coalition began a full-scale war against the impoverished nation.
The Arabic-language al-Masirah television network reported on Tuesday that Saudi-led fighter jets launched an airstrike on the residential area of Ghaferah of Dhahir district in the northern province of Sa’ada earlier in the day that resulted in the killing of child and wounding of several others.
It also said that a separate aerial aggression against a civilian vehicle, traveling from Jarrahi to Zabid cities in the western province of Hudaydah, leading to the killing two people.
Saudi Arabia and some of its allies, including the United Arab Emirates, Morocco and Sudan, launched a brutal war, code-named Operation Decisive Storm, against Yemen in March 2015 in an attempt to reinstall former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and crush the Houthi Ansarullah movement, which plays a significant role in aiding the Yemeni army in defending the country against the invading coalition.
The movement has also been running state affairs in the absence of an effective administration since the onset of the imposed war.
