At least five civilians have been killed when Saudi warplanes bombed a village on the western outskirts of Sana’a, Yemen.

The victims were all members of a single family, who were killed in a fresh Saudi airstrike against Yemen as Riyadh pushes ahead with its military campaign against Houthi Ansarullah revolutionaries in the impoverished Arab country.

Local sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the victims lost their lives when Saudi military aircraft fired several missiles into a number of houses in Beit Rajal village, which lies on the western outskirt of the Yemeni capital, Sana’a, on Monday noon, Yemen-based Arabic-language Wattan news agency reported.

The report added that people are rummaging through the rubble of destroyed houses in the village as many are believed to be trapped under the debris.

Hundred of civilians, including women and children, have been killed in the Saudi airborne attacks against Yemen.

Saudi Arabia’s air campaign against Yemen started on March 26 without a UN mandate in a bid to restore power to Yemen’s fugitive president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by the Houthi Ansarullah movement.

On March 25, the embattled president fled Aden, where he had sought to set up a rival power base, to Riyadh after Ansarullah revolutionaries advanced on the port.

Ansarullah fighters and their allies are now advancing southward while they have also stepped up the fight against al-Qaeda terrorists and secured many areas.
