Yemeni forces have fired as many as 38 rockets at several Saudi military bases in the southwestern province of Jizan.

There has been no immediate report on the possible casualties or damage caused in the Thursday attack.

The attack has been in retaliation for the deadly Saudi aggression against the impoverished Arab nation.

Earlier in the day, Saudi war planes targeted a market in the northwestern Yemeni province of Amran, killing at least seven people.

Meanwhile, the Saudi fighter jets bombarded the region of Sadad in the district of Bagim in the northeastern province of Sa’ada. Saudi forces also fired shells at an area in the town of Munabbih in Sa’ada.

Saudi warplanes also launched six airstrikes targeting the headquarters of Yemeni forces in the district of al-Bayda in the central province of al-Bayda.

In a separate development, the political council of Yemen’s Ansarullah movement condemned the deadly Saudi airstrikes against Yemeni people and the international community’s silence regarding the Saudi aggression.

The council said that Riyadh has crossed all red lines in its aggression against the impoverished nation.

Saudi fighter jets have been bombarding Yemen since March 26 without authorization from the United Nations and heedless of international calls for a halt to the onslaught.

According to the United Nations, over 3,000 Yemenis have been killed and 14,000 more injured in over three months of conflict in the country. Local Yemeni sources, however, say more than 4,500 people have been killed in the Saudi strikes.
