Saudi warplanes have carried out new airstrikes against several areas across Yemen, inflicting more human loss and material damage on the country.

According to local media reports, two Saudi airstrikes hit the Saqayn district of the northwestern province of Sa’ada on Sunday. There were no immediate reports of possible casualties in the attacks.

Earlier on Saturday, Saudi fighter jets targeted a residential area in Yemen’s central province of Ma’rib. Five people, including women and children, were killed.

Two women were also killed in a similar attack on the Sahar district of Sa’ada.

In the capital, Sana’a, the Saudi warplanes targeted a mosque killing four members of a family and wounding nine others.

Yemeni retaliation

Meanwhile, fighters from Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement, backed by allied army units, carried out retaliatory rocket attacks against military bases in Saudi Arabia’s southern provinces of Dhahran al-Janoub and Jizan.

At least one Saudi soldier was killed and five others were wounded in the Yemeni retaliatory attack in Jizan.

The Saudi military campaign against Yemen, which began on March 26 without a UN mandate, is meant to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and restore to power fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, who is a staunch ally of the Al Saud regime.

On June 16, UN Human Rights spokesman Rupert Colville said over 1,410 Yemeni civilians, including 210 women, had been killed and a further 3,423 injured since March 26.
