Saudi Arabian warplanes have targeted Yemen’s Sa’ada and Ta’izz provinces, respectively in the northwest and southwest of the impoverished country, taking the lives of five people.

On Wednesday, the aircraft bombarded the Saghein district in Sa’ada, causing one fatality and injuring three women. Striking the Razeh district in the same province also injured a Yemeni citizen, while destroying residential houses.

Saudi jets also struck Ta’izz International Airport, killing four more people. Amateur footage integrated below features the site of the attack.

The strikes come only a day after Saudi air raids reportedly took the lives of five people, including four women, and injured 10 others in the Khawkhah district of the country’s western Hudaydah Province.

Also on Tuesday, Saudi warplanes launched three air raids against the Baqim district and four assaults against the Hidan district, both located in Sa’ada Province. The attacks killed a woman and a child.

Yemen has been under military strikes on a daily basis since Saudi forces launched their military aggression against their southern neighbor on March 26, in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and restore power to fugitive former Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.

Around 7,000 people have reportedly lost their lives in the Saudi airstrikes, and a total of nearly 14,000 people have been injured since March. According to the United Nations Children’s Fund, 505 children have been among the fatalities.

The Yemeni army and allied Popular Committees have been retaliating against the Saudi aggression by striking targets on Saudi soil.
