Saudi Arabia’s military campaign in Yemen continues incessantly with at least four civilians killed in the latest act of aggression in the Northern Province of Sa’ada.

Saudi jets carried out airstrikes in the Baqim district on Sunday, Yemen's al-Masirah news channel reported, adding that several people were also injured in the attacks.

Several other Yemeni provinces were also targeted by Saudi warplanes, including the capital Sana’a.

Meanwhile, Yemeni forces launched more retaliatory attacks against Saudi Arabia. On Saturday, two Saudi soldiers were killed by Yemeni forces in the border region of Najran.

Fighters from Ansarullah movement and allied army units also conducted rocket attacks on Saudi military positions in Najran.

On February 4, Yemeni forces destroyed four Saudi military boats in southwestern waters as the boats were approaching the port city of Mocha.

The Yemeni forces also shot down a Saudi spy aircraft in the Harad district of the northwestern province of Hajjah earlier on February 3.

Yemen has been under military attacks by Saudi Arabia since late March last year. The Saudi military strikes were launched to supposedly undermine the Ansarullah movement and bring the fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, back to power.

At least 8,278 people, among them 2,236 children, have been killed and 16,015 others injured since March 2015. The strikes have also taken a heavy toll on the impoverished country’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, and factories, Press TV reported.
