The death toll from today’s mortar attack by Yemeni tribal fighters on Saudi Arabia’s border city of Najran has risen to five. Two Saudi officers and three civilians were killed in the latest shelling on the southwestern border city on Wednesday.

Saudi authorities declared a state of military curfew in Najran following a similar attack on Tuesday, which killed two Saudi officers and two civilians. According to reports, security forces declared the curfew by loudspeakers in the city’s neighborhoods, and cut off internet services.

Meanwhile, according to the al-Masira TV network, Saudi jets launched over 100 airstrikes on the northwestern Sa'ada and western Hajjah provinces. Saudi navy warships also fired several rockets on Maydi hospital in Hajjah province.

Saudi warplanes have also carried out strikes on various parts of Yemen with the latest raids targeting the provinces of Ma’rib and Dhamar, where dozens of people, mostly women and children, were killed.

Saudi Arabia started its military aggression against Yemen on March 26 -- without a UN mandate -- in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and to restore power to the fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, who is a staunch ally of Riyadh.

The Saudi military campaign has claimed the lives of over 1,200 people so far and injured several thousand others. Hundreds of women and children are among the victims, according to the United Nations health agency.
