At least two dozen people have been killed and over 80 others wounded as Saudi fighter jets step up airstrikes against the Yemeni capital, Sana’a, and other cities. 

Early on Wednesday, Saudi jets targeted the headquarters of Yemen’s military police in the Shu’aub district of Sana’a, killing 12 people and injuring 80 others, Yemen’s al-Masirah TV reported. The report said the aircraft had carried out seven rounds of bombings against the facility. It identified some of the casualties as prisoners held as part of criminal investigations. Separately, Saudi planes pounded Sahar District in the northwestern Yemeni province of Sa’ada, injuring four civilians. One of the casualties later died of the injuries. A Saudi strike also hit a vehicle in Maqbanah District of the southwestern Yemeni province of Ta’izz, leaving 11 people dead. The kingdom and a group of its allies have been bombing Yemen since 2015. More than 12,000 have died since the war began.
