Saudi warplanes have carried out fresh airstrikes on the northwestern province of Amran, killing and wounding more Yemeni people despite international warnings about deteriorating humanitarian crisis in the war-hit country.
In their latest aerial aggression on Wednesday, Saudi jets killed at least two civilians and injured nine others in Jebel al-Aswad area in the Harf Sufyan district of the province, Yemen’s official Saba Net news agency reported.
Meanwhile, Saudi troops targeted different areas in the west-central Ma’rib province with rockets and artillery shells. No information on possible fatalities and the scope of damage has been reported yet.
Yemen’s warring parties, the Houthi Ansarullah movement and delegates loyal to Saudi-backed former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, resumed face-to-face talks on Monday following a two-day interruption after an appeal by the UN envoy.
The peace talks on Yemen, which began on April 21 in Kuwait City, have failed to establish a comprehensive peace deal as delegations trade accusations of violation of the ceasefire that took effect on April 11. Houthi Ansarullah movement has accused Saudi Arabia and its mercenaries of constantly violating the truce agreement.
Yemen has been under airstrikes by Saudi Arabia since the regime in Riyadh launched its fatal campaign against the impoverished country on March 26, 2015, in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and restore power to Hadi. More than 9,400 people have been killed in the Saudi airstrike ever since.
