Saudi airstrikes to residential areas of Taiz left 120 people dead and over 150 others injured while rescue teams and ambulances had difficulty reaching the targeted areas, Al-Alam News Network reports.

Local sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Saudi warplanes struck 200 residential units in al-Mukha district of the province, situated 346 kilometers (214 miles) south of the capital, Sana’a, late on Friday, leaving 120 people dead and over 150 others injured, al-Masirah satellite television network reported.
