An airstrike by Saudi Arabia kills a family of ten in Yemen’s Ta’izz Province, local reports say.

The incident occurred in Moze’e district in Ta’izz on Saturday.

Saudi aircraft also hit Jabal al-Naqam neighborhood of the capital on Friday, killing five people, including two women and a child.

Additionally, Saudi jets pounded the residence of a cleric identified as Sheikh Yahya al-Raei in the Jahran district of the central-western Yemeni province of Dhamar, leaving his two sons and a relative dead. A number of people were also wounded in the aerial attack.

Saudi fighter jets bombarded a market in Haydan district of Sa’ada Province, killing one civilian and injuring 10 others. The death toll is expected to rise as some of the injured are in critical condition.

Also on Friday, Saudi warplanes bombarded Mukayras district in the central Yemeni province of al-Bayda. No reports about possible casualties were immediately available.

Yemeni forces also launched a barrage of mortar shells al-Mosfaq military camp in Saudi Arabia’s al-Tawal region, leaving an unspecified number of Saudi soldiers wounded.

Yemen has been under military strikes by Saudi Arabia on a daily basis since March 26. The strikes are supposedly meant to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and restore power to Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.

According to a new tally, at least 7,000 people have reportedly lost their lives in the Saudi strikes, and a total of nearly 14,000 people have been injured since March.
