Saudi warplanes have continued their brutal bombardment of Yemeni targets, killing dozens of more people across the country.

Saudi fighters on Sunday targeted residential areas in the town of Hidan in Sa’ada Province seven times.

Four civilians were killed and eleven others injured in the attacks.

The jets also targeted water reserve and distribution centers in the town.

The war planes bombarded the town’s market place 20 times, as well, killing three people there.

The planes also attacked Atis region near the town of Kitaf in Sa’ada Province, killing five Yemenis.

Several regions in Ma’rib Province were also attacked, including Sarvah, and Wadi Hobab.

The Saudis reportedly used cluster bombs in the attacks on Wadi Hobab.

Saudi warplanes also bombarded the main prison in the central province of Bayda, killing 15 people and injuring more. A group of prisoners managed to escape from the prison after the attack.

Saudi warplanes also bombarded the residential area of Yemen’s Presidential Palace in the capital, Sana’a. At least eight missiles also landed in the palace area. The al-Nahdein area was also bombarded by Saudi warplanes.

Reports added that at least five people were killed in similar airstrikes on the province of Hudaydah. Saudi military aircraft targeted the airport and an air defense camp in the province.

It was also reported that Saudi warplanes pounded Ta’izz, killing three people, including two children and a woman.

Yemen has been the target of a brutal Saudi military campaign since March 26. The aggression aims to undermine the popular Houthi Ansarullah movement and restore power to fugitive former Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, an ally of Riyadh.

About 6,400 people, including some 500 children, have reportedly lost their lives in the strikes.

In retaliation for the brutal Saudi attacks, Yemen’s army, backed by allied Popular Committees attacked targets in Saudi Arabia’s Jizan Province.

Several Saudi soldiers were killed and wounded and their military vehicles destroyed in the attacks.
