Fresh Saudi regime ae­rial ag­gres­sion kills at least 6 peo­ple across Ye­men

Tehran Times - - WORLD IN FOCUS -

At least six civil­ians have been killed and sev­eral oth­ers wounded when the House of Saud regime war­planes con­ducted mul­ti­ple airstrikes against res­i­den­tial ar­eas across war-rav­aged Ye­men as the Saudi regime con­tin­ues with its atro­cious bom­bard­ment cam­paign against its im­pov­er­ished neigh­bor.

Ye­men’s of­fi­cial Saba news agency, cit­ing an un­named mil­i­tary of­fi­cial on Mon­day, re­ported that at least two women and one man were killed af­ter the Saudi regime fighter jets pounded a res­i­den­tial area in the Manakhah district of the west­ern prov­ince of Sana’a, adding that a child was also in­jured in the raid.

Ye­men’s Ara­bic-lan­guage al-Masirah satel­lite tele­vi­sion net­work, how­ever, raised the num­ber of peo­ple wounded to five, ex­clud­ing the child. It added that an­other child was wounded in a sep­a­rate airstrike in Sa’fan district in the same prov­ince.

Mean­while, Saba news agency, in an­other re­port, said that at least one child was killed and her mother and sis­ter were in­jured af­ter the Saudi regime war­planes hit their house in Bakil al-Mir district in the north­west­ern prov­ince of Ha­j­jah.

Ad­di­tion­ally on Mon­day, at least two civil­ians lost their lives af­ter Saudi snipers mor­tally in­jured them in Manba bor­der district in the north­ern prov­ince of Sa’ada, Saba fur­ther re­ported, cit­ing an un­named se­cu­rity of­fi­cial.

The House of Saud regime ag­gres­sion was launched in March 2015 in sup­port of Ye­men’s for­mer Riyadh-friendly gov­ern­ment and against the coun­try’s An­sarul­lah (Houthi) move­ment, which has been run­ning state af­fairs in the ab­sence of an ef­fec­tive ad­min­is­tra­tion.

The of­fen­sive has, how­ever, achieved nei­ther of its goals de­spite the spend­ing of bil­lions of petrodol­lars and the en­list­ing of Saudi Ara­bia’s re­gional and West­ern al­lies.

The Ye­meni Min­istry of Hu­man Rights an­nounced in a state­ment on March 25 that the Saudi regime-led war had left 600,000 civil­ians dead and in­jured dur­ing the past three years.

The United Na­tions says a record 22.2 mil­lion peo­ple are in need of food aid, in­clud­ing 8.4 mil­lion threat­ened by se­vere hunger. A high-rank­ing UN aid of­fi­cial re­cently warned against the “cat­a­strophic” liv­ing con­di­tions in Ye­men, stat­ing that there was a grow­ing risk of famine and cholera there.
