Saudi Arabia’s latest airstrikes on Yemen and ensuing explosions have claimed the lives of a dozen Somali nationals, local media say.
The 12 Somali citizens were killed after Saudi fighter jets pounded a bridge in the Bagim district of Yemen’s northwestern province of Sa’ada on Saturday, Yemen’s Saba Net news agency reported.
Saudi warplanes also bombarded two areas as well as a village in the Khawlan district, located in Sana’a Province, multiple times.
Tens of families also left the al-Mukha District in the southwestern province of Ta’izz following similar Saudi airborne assaults.
Saudi jets further struck two areas in Yemen’s central Ma’rib province.
Meanwhile, in response to the fatal Saudi raids, Yemeni army, backed by popular committees, fired retaliatory rockets into two military bases in Saudi Arabia, Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah satellite television network
Yemen has been under military strikes on a daily basis since Saudi forces launched their military aggression against their southern neighbor on March 26, in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and restore power to the fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.
Some 6,400 people have reportedly lost their lives in the Saudi attacks, and a total of almost 14,000 people have been wounded since March.
