A dozen people from the same family have been killed as Saudi Arabian warplanes continue bombing Yemen.

They were killed in the Sirwah district in the central Ma’rib Province on Sunday.

In return, Yemeni army soldiers, backed by fighters from popular committees loyal to the Ansarullah movement, targeted a number of Saudi bases in the kingdom’s Jizan region.

Yemeni army also destroyed Saudi military vehicles in Ma’rib and killed a number of Saudi forces.


Yemen has been under constant military attacks by Saudi jet fighters since late March. The Saudi military strikes are aimed at undermining the popular Ansarullah movement, and restore power to fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, who is a Saudi ally.

More than 7,500 people have been killed and over 14,000 others injured since March.

The strikes have also taken a heavy toll on the impoverished country’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, and factories.
