Lebanese people staged a protest in front of the Saudi embassy in the capital Beirut in condemnation of the Persian Gulf kingdom's unrelenting air strikes on Yemen.

On Tuesday, the protesters called for an immediate end to the "blatant" Saudi aggression. They also expressed their solidarity with the Yemeni people. Saudi Arabia launched its bombing campaign against Yemen on March 26 in an attempt to restore power to fugitive President Mansour Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement. Despite Riyadh's claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

According report, the Monarchy's attacks have so far claimed the lives of at least 3,024 civilians, mostly women and children.

Meanwhile, according to a report by Yemen's Freedom House Foundation, Saudi airstrikes have killed 3,512 Yemeni people, including 492 children and 209 women, since the beginning of the aggression until April 25.

The report added that 6,189 people were injured, including 978 children and 713 women, during the same period. About 95,000 families have been displaced due to the Saudi-led airstrikes, according to the report.

The foundation further said 4,898 residential buildings have been either destroyed or damaged and some 857 civil service and public utility facilities have been destroyed.

On April 21, after four weeks of bombings, Riyadh declared end to military operations in Yemen, but Saudi warplanes are still bombing residential areas across the war-ravaged nation one week after.
