As ground invasion begins, Saudi warplanes have begun new attacks on Yemen’s northwestern Sa’ada Province, killing five people there, Press TV reports.

The fatalities were caused in the Razeh city on Friday. Casualties were also reported after Saudi warplanes launched airstrikes on the city of Amran, also located in the country’s northwest.

Meanwhile, in the southwest, Saudi fighter jets conducted four airstrikes on the central security camp in the city of Ibb, the provincial capital of a province with the same name.

Two women were killed and three people wounded in airstrikes on the Majma’ah complex in the province.

Saudi Arabia began its military aggression against Yemen on March 26 – without a UN mandate – to restore power to the fugitive former Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh, and to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement.

Over 4,300 people have been killed in conflict in Yemen since late March, the World Health Organization said on August 11. Local Yemeni sources, however, say the fatality figure is much higher.
