The Saudi-led coalition fighter jets hit residential area in Yemen, and killed and wounded scores of civilians as Riyadh’s air campaign against the Arab country has so far killed more than 15,500 Yemenis.
Several civilians have been killed and wounded on Friday when Saudi warplanes bombed two markets of Sarbi and Mahather and a main road in Farwh area in Yemen’s Sa’ada province, Saba news agency reported.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen since March 2015 to restore power to fugitive President Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 15,500 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
The Saudi-led air campaign against Yemen has driven the impoverished country towards humanitarian disaster, as Saudi Arabia’s deadly campaign prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, according to several reports.
A UN panel has compiled a detailed report of civilian casualties caused by the Saudi military and its allies during their war against Yemen, saying the Riyadh-led coalition has used precision-guided munitions in its raids on civilian targets.
