In the attacks carried out by Saudi fighter jets against residential neighborhoods across Yemen at least 10 people have lost their lives and several others have sustained injuries.
On Friday, Saudi military aircraft struck a vehicle carrying a displaced family along a road in Baqim district in Yemen’s northwestern province of Sa’dah, located 240 kilometers (150 miles) north of the capital Sana'a, leaving eight people dead and several others wounded, Lebanon-based Arabic-language al Mayadeen television news network reported.
Two women also lost their lives and a number of others wounded when the Saudi military aircraft struck a family house in Sana’a province's Nihm district.
Later in the day, three aerial attacks hit Qamar village and Dar al-Nasr town in the kingdom’s southwestern border region of Jizan as the Yemeni soldiers, backed by fighters from allied Popular Committees, were advancing deeper into the Saudi territory in response to Riyadh's devastating aerial campaign against their country.
The airstrikes come as Saudi officials have ordered Jizan residents to immediately evacuate their homes in the wake of Yemenis’ retaliatory attacks.
The officials have threatened to strip the locals of their citizenship if they refuse to leave.
Saudi military forces have also been deployed to residential areas across the region as part of preparations for a possible escalation of tensions.
Some activists say the Saudi regime has already cut the locals’ access to food resources and water reservoirs and limited their freedom of movement.
Yemen has been under military strikes by Saudi Arabia since late March 2015. The Saudi war was launched in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and to reinstate Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who has resigned as Yemen’s president but seeks to forcefully grab power; Press TV reported.
