Nearly two dozen civilians have lost their lives when Saudi fighter jets launched an aerial attack in Yemen’s southwestern province of Ta’izz as the Riyadh regime continues with its bombardment campaign against its impoverished neighbor.
Local sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, told al-Masirah television network that Saudi warplanes targeted a vehicle as it was travelling along a road in the al-Arish of Mawza district on Friday afternoon.
The sources added that 20 people were killed in the airstrike.
Earlier in the day, three houses were reduced to rubble in the al-Dhaher district of the mountainous northwestern province of Sa’ada, when Saudi military aircraft carried out three airstrikes against the area.
A high-ranking UN aid official recently warned against the “catastrophic” living conditions in Yemen, stating that there was a growing risk of famine and cholera there.
