More people have lost their lives in Yemen as Saudi Arabia launches fresh air raids against the impoverished Arab nation in defiance of calls for ending the deadly offensive.

At least two Yemenis were killed and three others were reported injured in Saudi air raids on Harad district in Hajjah province on Friday.

Saudi warplanes also targeted a number of localities in Hidan district of northern Sa’ada province.

Meanwhile, Yemen’s Ansarullah fighters have also seized a large depot of Saudi ammunition in southwestern province of Ta’izz.

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has recently said that it has been appalled by the continuing Saudi strikes on the impoverished country’s healthcare facilities.

"The neutrality of healthcare facilities and staff is not being respected,” said Kedir Awol Omar, the deputy head of the ICRC delegation in Yemen, on its website Tuesday, adding, “Health facilities are deliberately attacked and surgical and medical supplies are also being blocked from reaching hospitals in areas under siege."

The relentless bombardment of the impoverished nation, which started on March 26, without any international mandate, has been meant to undermine Ansarullah and restore power to the fugitive former Yemeni president and a major ally of Riyadh, Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi.

Over 7,100 people have been killed and more than a million have been displaced since the Saudi aggression began, with militant groups, either al-Qaeda-related or those linked with Hadi, targeting civilians and security forces.
