At least eight civilians, including women and children, have been killed in Saudi Arabia’s multiple airstrikes across war-torn Yemen during the past 24 hours.
Yemen's official Saba news agency, citing a military source, reported on Sunday that seven of the victims were women and children. The airstrikes targeted various areas across Sana’a, Hajjah and Sa’ada provinces. The report added that at least 10 other civilians sustained injuries.
In one of the deadliest air raids against Yemeni people, Saudi warplanes last Sunday hit a wedding ceremony in Hajjah several times, killing almost 50 people and wounding 55 more. Saudi jets also carried out raids on ambulances transporting the casualties to local hospitals.
The Saudi-led offensive has achieved neither of its goals despite the spending of billions of petrodollars and the enlisting of Saudi Arabia's regional and Western allies.
